Draws upon 30 years of climate research and experience to explore the cultural ways in which humans have brought climates to life, how people have used these cultivated climates for their own ends, and how we continue to do so today.
An ambitious retrospective and prospective overview of the field that aims to position Nature, the environment and natural processes, at the heart of interdisciplinary social sciences.
