Editorial Reviews


"Anyone interested in climate change issues will find something of value here...glad of the insights gained from readingCreating a Climate for Change.
Lawrence A. Coleman, Ecology

"[The book's] core message about rethinking the information model for communicating climate change is easily translated into rhetorical terms and thus interesting as an early analysis of a challenge that is only growing in importance and urgency. ...scholars looking for bodies of public discourse on climate change will be guided to several such stories by articles in this collection. ...the articles in this collection can be read for evidence of how climate change has been refracted through the discourses of American social science and politics. In order that rhetoric and the humanities may play a greater role in shaping our culture's response to climate change, I urge QJS to examine Creating a Climate for change." - Michael Svoboda, Quarterly Journal of Speech

Book Description

Format: Paperback
I'm just wondering why this book is so expensive. It can't be *that* great. I heard one of the authors on a radio show and decided to check out her book, because what she says is right on, but it's not like she has such exclusive information. This is information that should be shared with the world, but it's prohibitively expensive. (In fact, I'd like to review the book for my podcast, so I should get it for free.) If she cut the price of this book in half, more people would buy it and someone out there might even be inspired to do something wonderful to fight climate change as a result. Books like these should be more accessible, not less.
