Book Description Pier 9 / Murdoch Books, Sydney, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. First Australian edition. 4to (275 x 205 mm), 271 pp, illustrated throughout in colour and b/w, bibliography, index, pictorial endpapers. Pictorial boards. 'They feed us, shelter us, clothe us, cure us and clean the air that we breathe. Roots of Civilisation takes a closer look at the plants often taken for granted, but which have changed the world, for better and for worse. The story of these plants is also the story of human survival and ingenuity, the invention of agriculture, the greed of men and their rulers, and the founding of trade routes and empires. Advances in science and medicine are charted as are the new frontiers such as genetic modification and the plants grown by NASA in outer space. The Roots of Civilisation looks not only at the better known world-changers such as opium, tobacco, cotton and the orchid, but also at the humbler flora that have quietly but profoundly shaped human civilisation.' NOTE: The book weighs 1.4 kg. Seller Inventory # E11124
