My review on the concept of the Anthropocene has just been published in Annual Reviews in Environment and Resources. I explore the history of the concept, how it is used in disciplines ranging from the Earth system sciences, geology, ecology, social sciences and in the wider cultural sphere, and how useful it is a way of describing the modern environmental challenge.
