Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our times, yet also seemingly intractable. This book offers novel insights on this contemporary challenge, drawing together the state-of-the-art thinking in anthropology. Approaching climate change as a nexus of nature, culture, science, politics, and belief, the book reveals nuanced ways of understanding the relationships between society and climate, science and the state, certainty and uncertainty, global and local that are manifested in climate change debates. The contributors address three major areas of inquiry: how climate change issues have been framed in previous times compared to the present; how knowledge about climate change and its impacts is produced and interpreted by different groups; and how imagination plays a role in shaping conceptions of climate change.

Review:

“A brilliant overview of this emerging area of study. Barnes and Dove have provided an accessible volume that will shape the social study of climate and climate change from here on.”—Jesse Ribot, University of Illinois (Jesse Ribot)

Climate Cultures offers major insights, makes significant contributions, and illustrates the impressive scope of current anthropological perspectives applied to understanding climate change in new and original ways. It is extremely important scholarship.”—Karl Zimmerer, Pennsylvania State University (Karl Zimmerer)

“From the meetings of the IPCC to the perambulations of herders in India, these essays do the crucial work of mapping the origins and impacts of circulating, global, and power-laden climate change cultures.”—Paul Robbins, author of Political Ecology: A Critical Introduction (Paul Robbins)

“[A] timely, thorough, well-written collection.”—Choice (Choice)
