Summary
A collection of thirty-two essays by leading thinkers across the disciplines. These essays explore the Anthropocene from scientific, anthropological, social, artistic, and economic points of view. They seek to understand the drivers of human-induced environmental change as well as how people and planetary systems are adapting to such change. Each writer offers invaluable insight into Earth's future as the Anthropocene accelerates.
