OUR PLUNDERED PLANET

A grim but absorbing book about a threat greater than the atom bomb- the waste of the world's natural resources. With a minimum of statistics, the author hammers home the devastating fact that most of the world's agricultural bank balance is running down at an increasing rate, and that science hasn't been able to reverse the direction. What will do the trick is long-range government planning and control, a remedy unpalatable to rugged individualism, but working out successfully in Russia. The author, president of the New York Zoological Society, has done a solid and scientific job that should make many sit up and take notice.
