Since its original publication in 1999, this unforgettable survey of the earth from a spectacular vantage point has wowed nature lovers and armchair geographers. For almost two decades, Arthus-Bertrand has continued to travel and photograph the planet, collecting new material that has never been published. In this updated edition, he reveals more than 100 new images and presents essays on current environmental and humanitarian issues by Nicholas Stern, Jane Goodall, Runa Khan, and Mathieu Ricard. With new photography, essays, and revisions throughout, this up-to-date portrait of our world juxtaposes evidence of humanity's destructive impact with the planet's raw beauty.
