The World Without Us

Written by Alan Weisman


The World Without Us is the Book of Revelations writ large for the 21st century.  Alan Weisman has listed the crises facing planet Earth and what would happen if humankind would disappear from Earth altogether--the built environment without continual maintenance would collapse (thinkOzymandias); Nature would quickly reclaim its original domain; some species would thrive but those dependent on humans would die off; some damaged environments would recover but others would not.  This book is a catalog of disaster and opportunity--a must-read for anyone concerned about the future of civilization, not to mention planet Earth.
