A significant contributor to global CO2 emissions but likely to be affected by wide-ranging and potentially devastating climate change.

  8. Ecological Restoration and Environmental Change

  9. May’s Book of the Month: Asian American Literature

    Asian American Literature, May’s ‘Book of the Month’, is a four-volume collection co-published by Routledge and Edition Synapse.

    American writers whose provenance lies in Asia have been producing and publishing work of interest and distinction for well over a century. However, in recent decades there has been an exponential growth in their output, and much Asian American literature has now achieved new levels of both popular success and critical acclaim. The burgeoning number of literary anthologies and academic studies attests to a growing and deepening scholarly attention. Indeed, Asian American literature—and the serious critical work it has spawned—is now central to debates about national cultures, world civilizations, and transnational imaginations.

  10. Visualizing Climate Change

    Carbon dioxide and climate change are largely invisible, and the prevailing imagery of climate change is oftentimes remote (such as ice floes melting) or abstract and scientific (charts and global temperature maps). Using spectacular visual imagery, 3D and 4D visualizations of future landscapes, community mapping, and iconic photographs, this book demonstrates new ways to make carbon and climate change visible where we care the most, in our own backyards and communities.
