Building a Sustainable Society

by Lester Russell Brown
 
Eight centuries before Christ, a Mayan civilization began in the lowlands of Guatemala. For more than seventeen centuries its population grew steadily until suddenly, around A.D. 900, the society collapsed. Within decades the population fell to one-tenth its previous level. The apparent reason: soil erosion.
