Morning Star "An engaging and thought-provoking contribution to current conflict analysis." International Affairs "A thought-provoking if uncomfortable read." Irish Times "Should be considered mandatory reading for anyone with concerns over the impact of climate change upon their lives, their families, their communities, their country." Midwest Book Review "Should be considered mandatory reading for anyone with concerns over the impact of climate change upon their lives, their families, their communities, their country." Library Bookwatch "If you have pondered what climate change means for humanity, here's a book for you ... A fascinating tome."
