Reviews

'We are all on thin ice when it comes to the Arctic and global climate change. This smart, savvy volume edited by Swedish scholars, Miyase Christensen, Annika E. Nilsson and Nina Wormbs, is essential reading for everyone interested in the future of the planet and the role ice plays in shaping our material reality and social imaginary.' - James Rodger Fleming, Colby College, Maine, USA

'The topic of the study is a multi-focused analysis of a particular event, the 2007 Arctic sea ice minimum and its representation by the media, polar scientists, indigenous residents, and the environmental community. It is a fascinating story of a geophysical phenomenon (an ice low of record scale) that became a media-scripted event tooled to drive the message of global warming to various constituencies, including policy makers, industrial and tourist managers, and environmentalists.' - ACS Newsletter
