Future climate change

US Library journal recommends Mark Maslin and Sam Randall’s four volume collection

Future climate change

The November issue of Choice, the influential publication of the US Association for College & Research Libraries, has highly recommended a collection of almost 90 papers, book chapters, and essays, Future climate change: critical concepts in the environment edited by Professor Mark Maslin and Dr Sam Randalls.

The collection is in four volumes: Volume 1, Science,  summarises scientific effort over nearly two centuries, but Volumes 2-4 reflect the growing public concern with climate change by drawing from a broader body of recent literature, including the social sciences, arts and humanities. Volume 2, Impact assessments, addresses physical and social impacts from global and regional perspectives. Volume 3, Politics and solutions, encompasses the breadth of policy proposals and solutions, from improved adaptation methods to technological innovations, including geo-engineering. Finally, Volume 4, Framing and debate, reflects various political, cultural, and religious perspectives on the climate change debate.

The Choice review, by Dr Justin Schoof, recent recipient of the Association of American Geographers Mather Paper of the Year Award, describes Future Climate Change as “an impressive collection of writings that will be utilized as a valuable multidisciplinary reference on climate change for at least a decade.”

Future climate change: critical concepts in the environment: v.1: Science; v.2: Impact assessments; v.3: Politics and solutions; v.4: Framing and debate, ed. by Mark Maslin and Samuel Randalls.  Routledge, (Series: Critical Concepts in the Environment) 2012. ISBN 9780415569811,
