CLIMATE CHANGE AND DISPLACEMENT: MULTIDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES, Jane McAdam, ed., Hart, 2010
This article reviews the book, Climate Change and Displacement: Multidisciplinary Perspectives, edited by Jane McAdam . To address the complex issues surrounding climate migration, Jane McAdam has taken a new approach to the exploration of climate-induced migration. She brings together the work of various researchers across a wide-range of disciplines to holistically analyze the issue, while recognizing that no single field can address all of the issues involved with climate migration. The disciplines of geography (political, economic, and human), sociology, law, political economy, moral philosophy, public health, medical anthropology, epidemiology, psychiatric epidemiology, international relations, and psychology are weaved throughout the collective chapters to answer the question of how climate change and displacement is considered and managed.
