EARTH is the fascinating new series from Reaktion Books.
Written by experts who are passionate about their subject, it is the first of its kind to trace the historical significance of natural phenomena and cultural history of natural resources.
By bringing together representations from mythology, religion, art, literature, science, popular culture, cinema and television, the world around around us is explored and explained in an exciting new way.
