This opening segment of this series looks at the two major historical turning points of human civilization - the change from mobile hunting and gathering societies to settled agricultural communities, and the harnessing of fossil fuels that led to the Industrial Revolution of the 18th century. These shifts in society have had major impacts on population and resource use across the globe, and fundamentally altered the human relationship with the environment. The resulting global environmental changes and challenges are examined throughout the series. Available for loan.
