This volume presents data and concepts from a broad range of disciplines (genetic, anthropological, social, historical and theological) that affect our life and well-being within our environment. It shows the limits but also the possibilities for action and so throws light on our present and future fate as individuals, as citizens, and as decision makers.
- Accessibly written, requiring no specific background knowledge of the reader
