““This is a splendid introduction to the Anthropocene by one of its most eloquent celebrants. I’m especially moved by Schwägerl’s conversations with Paul Crutzen and other scientists at the heart of the Anthropocene debates…. Scholars will appreciate his long tenure with the subject and the depth of his research.”
–Diane Ackerman, author of The Human Age.
