Since 1492, when Columbus "discovered" America, the world has been moving toward an increasingly integrated global economy, higher population levels and consequently greater resource demands, and an increasingly precarious state of the biosphere. These developments play a major part in both modern history and in daily life. Understanding their interrelationships and development is crucial to the future of humanity and of the Earth, and is the unifying theme of this collection of readings.

Book Description:

A collection of essays explores the interrelationship of higher population levels, greater resource demands and an increasingly precarious state of the biosphere with the development of an integrated global economy.

Review:

"Overall The Ends of the Earth serves its purpose well. Geographers will find intellectual stimulation and motivations for new research among these essays. Worster's invitation for geographers to contribute more to environmental history whould be welcomed." Michael E. Lewis, Geographical Reviews

"...provides readers with a fair introduction to the kinds of approaches taken by environmental historians." Forest and Conservation History

"...offers a diverse state-of-the-art introduction to environmental history. Donald Worster engages the reader with two strong and graceful essays. Not least, the book concludes with an important bibliography covering English titles in modern environmental history." John Opie, ISIS
