Why are there so many skyscrapers in New York? And why, on the contrary, does London have such a widespread underground system? Coincidence? Human ingenuity?

No, according to Lewis Dartnell, the reasons reach much deeper into the past – until the birth of our planet. Because everything that makes up our modern world – be it megacities, technical achievements or global trade routes – has its origin in the Earth’s natural structure: its climate, its landscape, its geological changes. Dartnell reveals the interplay of forces that has shaped the environment, controlled evolution and ultimately formed our society.

Lewis Dartnell is an astrobiologist and holds the Professorship in Science Communication at the University of Westminster. He has won several awards for his writing and outreach work.
