This book stems from a major international essay competition on regional responses to global climate change. First prize in the competition was awarded to Daniel Botkin, author of Discordant Harmonies (Oxford, 1989). The essays selected for this book cover developed and underdeveloped countries alike, and provide valuable background information for policy makers, businesses, and the industries most likely to be affected by global warming. The book is divided into three parts. Contributions in the first part focus on the concept of a regional approach to climate change and the methods best suited to studying its impacts. The second section illustrates the variety of impacts that regions will experience as a result of climate change; the third describes policies designed to deal with climate change. Written by some of the most knowledgeable experts in the field, these writings will interest all policymakers and research analysts involved in the ongoing debate on global warming.

"The emphasis is on impact at the regional level and the response strategies available to a region in coping with global warming effects. . . . one of the three the best and most up-to-date works in global warming. . . . valuable additions to any collection serving specialists in meteorology
or environmental studies." --Choice
"Disjointedness . . . is not a problem here. The editors evidently made an effort to unify . . . greatly enhancing the cohesiveness of the total work. . . . present a diverse set of perspectives on the global change issues. The essays are simultaneously scholarly and of uniformly high
readability and should be understandable to a general college-level audience. . . . a superb resource or text. The book also is an excellent reference for generalists (e.g. government officials) who need to become familiar with this multifaceted issue." --Soil Science
"Its strength is that the essays represent a wide diversity of methods, approaches, and thinking, which all attempt to analyze the response to climate change in current regional management and planning situations....An important contribution to the social science of climate change and it
clearly demonstrates that there is further room for exciting analytical work that integrates the biological, physical, and human aspects of global warming." --Environment and Planning A, UK
