Format: Paperback
I'm 77, now retired for 10 years, a former Naval officer. After resigning from the Navy to protest the Vietnam War, I worked as a full time environmentalist, largely in alternate energy and conservation, for 14 years--and this book, written even before Rachel Carson's amazing SILENT SPRING, was a stunner! It helped change my life in two ways: First, soon afterward I became an environmental activist for the rest of my life, and second, I followed up on Osborne's conclusions regarding destruction of habitats in the ancient world, and decided he was correct. The early Chinese, Native Americans, and Mesopotamians definnitely DID destroy their farmland, and their current civilization, by intensive monoculture, neglect of fallowing and crop rotation, and simply wearing out or salinizing the soil by surface irrigation. The same crimes we committed back in 1969, when I first read this book. My old copy has worn out, I'm still, at 77, an activist--and the whole earth, and my grandchildren's futures, are now at stake.

truly life changing when as a pre teen I read this book. It was a prophecy! way before Rachel Carsons book. Later, I was the first environmental teacher in the Napa Valley, late 60s.

This book is terribly important and should be used in schools to educate the masses. Instead we're all on here and hoping to make a difference. You can only change you're own personal actions and this is a good source of information on how ways to help yourself.
