About this book

This title offers a fascinating exploration of the precarious balance between human civilisation and the natural environment. As long as the human species has existed, men and women have had to contend with the unpredictability of nature. "Forces of Nature" presents readers with an illuminating overview of this age-old struggle as it explores human population shifts and their precarious relationships with climate change and geography. It takes readers on a journey along the migration routes of the earliest modern humans and tells us why our ancestors chose to settle down in certain places. It also discusses the rise of technology as a means of controlling the threatening features of the natural world. With its engaging narrative and fascinating insights, this volume offers a challenging perspective on the precarious balance between fragile human communities and their often threatening environments.
