The conquest of the Americas was the first step on the path to globalization. Today, 500 years later, we are rapidly approaching the prophecied global village and, consequently, natural and cultural uniformity.

Amidst all the literature and discussion supporting globalization, author and geographer, Danilo J. Anton, argues against it. In his newest book, Diversity, Globalization, and the Ways of Nature, Anton demonstrates how diversity is necessary for both natural and cultural survival. He is not against progress, rather he illustrates how the "informatics revolution" can be used to promote public participation, capture traditional knowledge, and provide new methods for the defense of the natural environment.
