Guy Wrench

Reconstruction By Way of the Soil

Book by
Dr Guy Wrench


“Nothing is more important and fundamental than the relationship between civilization and the soil. Guy Wrench takes us through the history of some of the world’s most important civilizations, concentrating on the relationship between humanity and the soil. He shows the reader how farming practices, and the care – or lack of care – with which the soil is treated have brought about both the rise and fall of civilizations, from the ancient Romans, to the Chinese, and the Muslim world.”
