Each contributor considers the present situation, historical trends, likely future prospects, and the efficacy or otherwise of current activity and policy. The coverage is worldwide, with a particular emphasis on North America. The State of Humanity is a magnificent and eye--opening synthesis of cultural, social, economic and environmental perspectives. It will interest all those -- including geographers, economists, sociologists and policy makers -- concerned to understand some of the most pressing problems of our time.
