  • Wasted Worldby Rob Hengeveld

    University of Chicago Press 2012; US$ 30.00

    All systems produce waste as part of a cycle—bacteria, humans, combustion engines, even one as large and complex as a city.

In Wasted World , Rob Hengeveld reveals how a long history of human consumption has left our world drowning in this waste. This is... more...

  • Human Dependence on Natureby Haydn Washington

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 46.95

    Humanity is dependent on Nature to survive, yet our society largely acts as if this is not the case.

This book examines why we... more...

  • Human Environment Interactions - Volume 2by Michelle Goman

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 50.78

    The Holocene is unique when compared to earlier geological time in that humans begin to alter and manipulate the natural environment to their own needs.

Conversely, as human populations began to... more...
