CAIRO BOOKS's Description
"Earth Then and Now" records the dramatic way in which our planet has changed
in just the past one hundred years. It draws on the combined photographic
archives of print, picture, and space agencies to create a powerful collection
of images. Each pair of photographs has been selected to tell a compelling
story - of a melting glacier, an expanding desert, an ever-rising cityscape or
a natural disaster - presenting a stark visual comparison. On one page, we are
shown a part of the world as it was, five, ten, twenty, fifty or even more than
one hundred years ago. On the facing page, we have the same place as it looks
today. Concise captions explain the facts and then leave us to draw our own
conclusions about the "Earth Then and Now" and about the Earth to come.
