Though long unknown in the West, Vladimir Vernadsky's The Biosphere, first published in 1926 (in Russian), revolutionized our view of Life on Earth. The ideas laid forth in this publication helped found numerous scientific fields and originated the concept of `life as a geological force' that forms the foundation of Gaia theory. This is the first reputable English edition which includes Mark McMenamin's extensive annotations explaining the structure of Vernadsky's arguments and their modern relevance.
