A Book of the Year

That’s the judgment of The Economist.  I am pleased that it lists The Triumph of Human Empire among the best writing of 2013 in its “science and technology” category, with this citation:

“A magnificent attempt to recapture the sense, so prevalent at the end of the 19th century, that the world was finished, explored and done. The responses of the three creative men on whom Rosalind Williams focuses have strong resonances for anyone who worries about today’s Anthropocene era.”
