Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The people of European descent form the bulk of the population in most of the temperate zones of the world--North America, Australia, and New Zealand. The military successes of European imperialism are easy to explain; in many cases they were a matter of firearms against spears. But as Alfred Crosby explains in this highly original and fascinating book, the Europeans' displacement and replacement of the native peoples in the temperate zones was more a matter of biology than of military conquest.

Review:
"History has been restructured once again, this time by ecology and biology. Crosby is the rooster at dawn. He argues that European weeds, diseases, domestic animals, and the winds allowed 'Neo-Europes' to replace indigenous human ecology."

Peter Warshall, Millennium Whole Earth Catalog
