A penetrating page turning tour of a post human Earth br br In The World Without Us Alan Weisman offers an utterly original approach to questions of humanity s impact on the planet he asks us to envision our Earth without us In this far reaching narrative Weisman explains how our massive infrastructure would collapse and finally vanish without human presence which everyday items may become immortalized as fossils how copper pipes and wiring would be crushed into mere seams of reddish rock why some of our earliest buildings might be the last architecture left and how plastic bronze sculpture radio waves and some man made molecules may be our most lasting gifts to the universe br br The World Without Us reveals how just days after humans disappear floods in New York s subways would start eroding the city s foundations and how as the world s cities crumble asphalt jungles would give way to real ones It describes the distinct ways that organic and chemically treated farms would revert to wild how billions more birds would flourish and how cockroaches in unheated cities would perish without us Drawing on the expertise of engineers atmospheric scientists art conservators zoologists oil refiners marine biologists astrophysicists religious leaders from rabbis to the Dali Lama and paleontologists who describe a prehuman world inhabited by megafauna like giant sloths that stood taller than mammoths Weisman illustrates what the planet might be like today if not for us br From places already devoid of humans a last fragment of primeval European forest the Korean DMZ Chernobyl Weisman reveals Earth s tremendous capacity for self healing As he shows which human devastations are indelible and which examples of our highest art and culture would endure longest Weisman s narrative ultimately drives toward a radical but persuasive solution that needn t depend on our demise It is narrative nonfiction at its finest and in posing an irresistible concept with both gravity and a highly readable touch it looks deeply at our effects on the planet in a way that no other book has, Alan Weisman has come as close as anyone to unraveling one of the big mysteries of the television age who is the real Dan Rather Weisman has devoted much time energy and talent to that question and this book is a fascinating read br Robert Pierpoint former CBS News correspondent br There is no career in modern television journalism that is more fascinating complicated controversial or accomplished than that of Dan Rather and there is no one who has focused the attention of colleagues TV writers competitors and of course critics to a similar degree over the last twenty five years Alan Weisman s lively account of this remarkable life explains why the quest to understand Rather has remained so vital and important br Verne Gay television critic Newsday br This book is an attempt to take a few steps back from Memogate and examine the whole picture the scope and breadth of Dan Rather s life career and times If he mattered enough to be watched by untold millions of people for fifty years on television then his story matters enough to be told as fully as possible br From Lone Star The Extraordinary Life and Times of Dan Rather, No description available, Throughout his childhood in Minneapolis Alan Weisman was told that his grandfather was killed by Communists in the Ukraine at the turn of the century When as an adult he meets a long estranged uncle who tells a very different version of the story Alan embarks on a search for the truth that takes him to the chemical ruin of Chernobyl and back in time to the Bolshevik Revolution He discovers the paradoxical rationale for his father s vehement political and social conservatism as well as a more universal truth that all immigrant families in order to survive in a new world must create protective family myths One of these myths hides the true fate of his grandfather a nightmare too terrible to express At once an examination of his rootless generation and a look at the hopes and dreams of his forefathers An Echo in My Blood takes you from the secret heart of an America you might not recognize to the pogroms of turn of the century Kiev br
