Summary, etc. 'Our relationship with nature has changed...radically, irreversibly, but by not means all for the bad. Our new epoch is laced with invention. Our mistakes are legion, but out talent is immeasureable.'

In The Human Age award-winning nature writer Diane Ackerman confronts the fact that the human race is now the single dominant force of change on the planet. Humans have 'subdued 75 per cent land surface, concocted a wizardry of industrial and medical marvels, strung lights all across the darkness'. We now collect the DNA of vanishing species in a 'frozen ark', equip orang-utans with iPads, create wearable technologies and sythetic species that might one day outsmart us. Ackerman takes us on an exciting journey to understand this bewildering new reality, introducing us to many of the people and ideas now creating - perhaps saving - the future.

The Human Age engagement with the dramatic transformations that have shaped, and continue to alter, our world, our relationship with nature and our prospects for the future. Diane Ackerman is one of the most lyrical, insightful and compelling writiers on the natural world and The Human Age is a landmark book.
