Water links all aspects of our existence.

The writers include Bob Braine, Robert Grudin, Wilson Harris, George Keithley, David Morse, Octavio Paz, physicist Sidney Perkowitz, Eva Salzman,Ted Steinberg, and Peter Warshall, editor of Whole Earth magazine. Photographers include Cyril Christo, Adam David Clayman, Monique Crepault, Helen M. Ellis, Sally Gall, Margaret McCarthy, Kristin Ordahl, Jerry Uelsmann, and Marie Wilkinson.This is the second in a series of Terra Nova books from MIT Press, which aim to show that environmental issues are cultural and artistic as well as practical and political.

Books By Author David Rothenberg

Bug Music by David Rothenberg Bug Music, Paperback (May 2014)

In the spring of 2013 the cicadas in the North Eastern United States emerged from their seventeen year cycle - the longest gestation period of any animal. This book explores a unique part of our relationship with nature and sound - the music of insects that has provided a soundtrack for humanity throughout the history of our species.

Thousand Mile Song by David Rothenberg Thousand Mile Song, Paperback (March 2010)

Before the 1960s, no one suspected the existence of whale song. Its discovery forced us to confront the possibility of alien intelligence - not in outer space but right here on earth. This title uses the enigma of whale sounds to examine the question of whether we can ever truly understand nonhuman minds - and how we should go about it.
