The book is an outcome of a conference almost 20 years ago. But instead of simply a list of papers, it is a very carefully edited book with a couple dozen chapters, each hanging together for the most part, and explaining why we really are part of the ecosystem, and more interesting what happens when we think we are apart, and why we've spent so many millenia considering ourselves apart.

Perhaps the most interesting areas of the book cover the major impact of pre-Columbian peoples on their ecology -- the high degree of impact and manipulation. The examples and explanation provided by the various authors is wonderful.

Highly recommended, if a bit dated.
