Reviews
A lovely book, in both content and execution.--Science Books & Films--

A superior, comprehensive survey.

--Booklist--

The breadth of discussion is remarkable...The Earth's Biosphere is unconventional.

--Annals of the Association of American Geographers--

... written by an author who does not allow facts to be obscured or overshadowed by politics.

--The New York Review of Books--
