From the Back Cover:

The unifying theme of Our Changing Planet is consideration of aspects of both natural and human-induced global environmental change. Part I deals with the natural exogenic system of Earth. It emphasizes the historical (geologic) perspective of change and discusses processes and change in the lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere systems. Part II demonstrates how human activities influence the natural system and the consequences of human-induced change for ecosystems, humans, and human infrastructures.
