Críticas:

A welcome change from the scatter-gun apocalypse-mongering which has become standard fare in green literature. With luck and foresight, and more books like this, we may yet learn our lesson. ("The Sunday Independent", London)

If there is a single book on the subject to engage the enthusiast, silence the cynic and enlighten the ignoramus, this is it. ( The Observer, London)

Reseña del editor:

Clive Ponting's original and provocative history of human civilization?now in a thoroughly revised, expanded, and updated edition
Years ahead of its time, Clive Ponting captivated readers with A Green History of the World, his study of great civilizations and the causes of their fall. Using the Roman empire as its central example, this classic work reveals how overexpansion and the exhaustion of available natural resources have played key roles in the collapse of all great cultures in human history. With an argument of urgent relevance to our modern society, A Green History of the World offers a provocative and illuminating view of human history and its relationship to the environment.
