What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
“For the third time, Professor Seitz has produced a readable, relevant, exciting and up-to-date book that addresses many of the major issues that affect our planet and the future of our species. His ability to see the ‘big picture’ and to show how closely all these global issues interlink is his major strength and is what makes this book a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in what happens to Earth.”
David Graham, Nottingham Trent University

"This new edition is the best yet - eloquently written, thoroughly documented, and presented in such a way as to let students develop their own critical perspective. Those of us who teach development or development issues should thank Professor Seitz for continuing to put forth new editions."
Edwin G. Clausen, Daemen College
