This review is from: Something New Under the Sun: An Environmental History of the World in the 20th Century (Global century) (Paperback)
Some books break new ground, and some cover areas almost totally uncharted. In Something New Under the Sun history and ecology combine into one of the astonishing and terryfing examinations of ecological damage I have read. The book avoids taking a preachy tone, instead regaling the reader with a litany of mankinds environmental impact in uderstated, clear prose, and to great effect.
If you are not an environmentalist but an historian, read this book for a reappraisal of modern history. If you are an ecological sceptic read this book. If you want to know how our children could live, read this book.
