Reviews

'Covering the nature, science, politics, assessment and management of climate change risks, this book is aimed at those who need to know about it as a strategic and operational risk.' CIR (Continuity, Insurance & Risk) magazine, March 2015 'Professor Arnell, the author of the book, absolutely succeeds in providing an accessible summary of the basics and the effects of the vast and complex climate change issue. ... The book is an excellent addition to the Gower "Short guides to business risks" series, which is particularly useful for business and environmental managers, students and practitioners across a wide range of sectors, public and private. Warmly recommended.' International Journal of Environment and Pollution, vol. 57, no. 1/2, 2015
