About this book

Most studies of the impacts of climate change consider impacts in the future from anthropogenic climate change. Very few consider what the impacts of past climate change have been. "History and Climate: Memories of the Future?" contains 13 interdisciplinary chapters which consider impacts of change in different regions of the world, over the last millennium. Initial chapters assess evidence for the changes, while later chapters consider the impacts on agriculture, fisheries, health, and society. The book will be of interest to anyone working in the field of climate change and history.

Media reviews

'... the book contains much interesting, useful material that students and researchers from a variety of disciplines will benefit from reading. ...this book does have something for everyone. ... it should retain a place in every library where there is an interest in either climate or history, or maybe even both.' Pete Langdon, University of Exeter in Progress in Physical Geography, 26:3 (2002)
