As governments act to address the impact of human activities on the global climate, this topical text considers the factors responsible and the geophysical, economic, legal and cultural consequences. Bloom emphasises the complex issues influencing decision-making in chapters covering the history of the Earth's climate, future modelling, the impact of rising CO2 levels, mitigation strategies in a number of industries, the economics of climate change and cultural factors.
Geographies of Media and Communication
Author: Paul C. Adams
Price: £50.00 and £19.99
ISBN 9781405154130 and 4147
Adams seeks to demonstrate the way in which geographical approaches can offer opportunities for analysis of familiar and less familiar aspects of communication. Themes are organised in a four-part structure of media in spaces, spaces in media, media in places and places in media. The "cultural turn" in geography, Adams argues, is the result of geographers' growing awareness of a variety of theories about communication.

Offering an overview of key debates in social geographic research and theory, and considering the historical development of the field, Del Casino explores the organisation of rural and urban spaces in ways that both construct and perpetuate social inequality. The text contextualises the assumptions of schools of thought over the course of their evolution and aims to help students address key methodologies.
