In this classic work that continues to inspire its many readers, Jim Lovelock puts forward his idea that life on earth functions as a single organism. Written for non-scientists, Gaia is a journey through time and space in search of evidence with which to support a new and radically different model of our planet. In contrast to conventional belief that living matter is passive in the face of threats to its existence, the book explores the hypothesis that the earth's living matter air, ocean, and land surfaces forms a complex system that has the capacity to keep the Earth a fit place for life. Since Gaia was first published, many of Jim Lovelock's predictions have come true and his theory has become a hotly argued topic in scientific circles. In a new Preface to this reissued title, he outlines his present state of the debate.

The Earth - Gaia - is alive, and we are killing it. It's not a sentiment that would normally trouble oil company PR expert Sandra Glazebrook, even while taking an eco-tourist trip in Venezuela with her sister Anne. But when Anne suddenly and tragically dies of a mysterious illness, and her body goes missing, Sandra and her colleague, investigative journalist Frank Stenson, begin a different kind of journey.Travelling from a jungle paradise to the slums of Caracas, they encounter corrupt police forces, extreme environmentalists, holistic scientists, and an Earth-worshipping religious cult, led by Angel, whom the authorities claim was killed in a mass-suicide pact but whose influence lives on. As Sandra and Frank move from grief to an unexpected love, they are caught up in a race against a horrible prophecy that they seem powerless to avert. For whatever befalls the Earth, befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth ...David Orrell is the author of APOLLO'S ARROW. GAIA is his first novel.

Homage to Gaia is a fascinating autobiographical sketch of the remarkable life of an 'independent scientist' whose revolutionary, and often controversial research has changed forever the way we see the Earth and our place on it. James Lovelock is most famous for his revolutionary theory that life and the material Earth evolved together as a single system, known as Gaia. His ability to continually challenge orthodox ways of thinking about science has established him as one of the outstanding and creative thinkers of the twentieth century.
