Topsoil and Civilization

Dale, Tom and Carter, Veron Gill

Original publication date: 1955
Original publisher: Norman, Oklahoma, University of Oklahoma Press
Publication status: Out of print

This classic survey of world history should never have been allowed to fall out of print. It demonstrates how every civilization from Mesopotamia to Rome has destroyed its agricultural resource base and thus destroyed itself. The book also looks at modern-day Europe and the United States with considerable uncertainty about the sustainability of our own system.
