About this book
Reissue of the second edition of the classic work, with a new cover and a new preface by the author. Published to coincide with Lovelock's autobiography, "Homage To Gaia", also published by Oxford this month.
In "Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth", James Lovelock theorized that the Earth, its rocks, seas, atmosphere, and all life are part of one great organism. Here, he examines environmental issues, including the greenhouse effect, acid rain, ozone depletion and the loss of tropical forest.
