"The evolutionary road is littered with failed experiments, and Richard Manning suggests that agriculture as we have practiced it runs against both our grain and nature's. Drawing on the work of anthropologists, biologists, archaeologists, and philosophers, along with his own travels, he argues that not only our ecological ills - overpopulation, erosion, pollution - but our social and emotional malaise are rooted in the devil's bargain we made in our not-so-distant past. And he offers personal, achievable ways we might re-contour the path we have taken to resurrect what is most sustainable and sustaining in our own nature and the planet's."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
