Summary:
"Our attitudes to our environment are widely and oftyen acrimoniously discussed, commonly misunderstood, and will shape our future. ... This book presents data and concepts from a range of disciplines - genetics, anthropology, sociology, history and theology - to help us understand past responses and how these affect our future. With a historical overview and a discussion of the current situation, [it] informs decisions that will have profound impacts on all of us both today and in the years to come."--Back cover.
