9780810984615: The New Earth from Above: 365 Days: Revised Edition

The New Earth From Above: 365 Days is now fully revised and updated. Reaching across the continents, from the icebergs of Antarctica to the cotton fields of India, the breathtaking, full-color photographs are accompanied by informative new text that describes the environmental concerns related to each location. Each chapter of the book opens with an insightful introduction by a different noted author who addresses a subject critical to the future of our planet: agriculture, biodiversity, sustainable development, energy, forests, water, and global warming.
This edition includes 60 new and unpublished photos taken by Arthus-Bertrand over the past few years. The text throughout the book is revised to reflect changes in the world since the last publication, and includes three new authors: the heads of WWF France and the Observatory of Renewable Resources, and the president of Alter Eco, a fair trade firm. Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s powerful aerial photographs reveal the incidental beauty of our planet and are reminders of our capacity to save or destroy it.

About the Author:

Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s more than 40 books include the multimillion-copy international bestseller Earth From Above. His photography regularly appears in magazines such as National Geographic, Life, GEO, and Sierra Magazine. He is the chairman of GoodPlanet, a nonprofit association for the promotion of sustainable development. He also directed a series of four, 2-hour documentaries based on Earth From Above and is the director of the film Home. He lives in France.

From Booklist:

Bird's-eye photography year-in-the-life books are perennial favorites, but famed aerial photographer Arthus-Bertrand is up to more than presenting 365 beautiful images. He has joined forces with a dozen conservationists to create a pictorial accounting of the impact of humankind on the planet. With brief essays on sustainable development, climate change, biodiversity, water, and global economics, and with vividly informative commentary accompanying each page-filling photograph, this is a unique illustrated eco-primer. The strikingly patterned and colorful aerial compositions reveal the unity of life on earth in all its glorious symmetry, contrasts, and complexity. Here are landscapes of breathtaking splendor, spectacular cities and archaeological sites, lively street markets and agricultural bounty. Here, too, are slums, refugee camps, and the devastations of drought, deforestation, industrialization, and war. Candid reports on harsh realities ranging from vanishing species to child exploitation are matched with such surprising revelations as the beauty of an aluminum scrap yard. Arthus-Bertrand's artistically documented whole-earth survey captures life's interconnectedness, the essence of ecology, and forms a map to a viable future. Seaman, Donna
