Another doorstop of a book by the author of The Silk Roads. Here, Frankopan turns his attention to the natural world, and how it too has shaped human history, and how humanity has attempted to bend nature to its own needs. Going from early farming through to the current climate crisis, this book takes a very long view on our current situation.
