It does this by examining the concept of culture through a number of case studies from Europe, Africa, Oceania, Latin America, and the Caribbean in order to probe the methodological and theoretical implications of the divergent scholarly and popular concepts of culture

17 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The greatest single impact of climate change could be on human migration', stated the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1990. Since then there has been considerable concern about the large-scale population movements that might take place because of climate change.

It addresses both larger, general questions and concrete local cases, where the link between climate change and human mobility is manifest and demands attention - empirically, analytically and conceptually. Among the cases explored are both historical and contemporary instances of migration in response to climate change, and together they illustrate the necessity of analyzing new patterns of movement, historic cultural images and regulation practices in the wake of new global processes"--
