Description:

This book concludes the best-selling trilogy begun by 'The Social Conquest of Earth' and 'The Meaning of Human Existence', a National Book Award finalist.

History is not a prerogative of the human species, the author declares in this book, a brave work that becomes a radical redefinition of human history. Demonstrating that we blindly ignore the histories of millions of other species, he warns of a point of no return that is imminent. Angrily challenging the fashionable theories of Anthropocenes, who contend that humans can survive alone in an Edenic bubble engineered for their own survival, Wilson documents that the biosphere does not belong to us. Yet, refusing to believe that our extinction is, as so many fear, predetermined, Wilson has written this book as a cri de coeur, proposing that the only solution to our impending 'Sixth Extinction' is to increase the area of natural reserves to half the surface of the earth. Suffused with a profound Darwinian understanding of our planet's fragility, this book is a transformative work that reverberates with an urgency like few others.
