Editorial Reviews

Review

Science in an Extreme Environment offers an in-depth history of both the climbing and the science of one of the most significant and path-breaking American mountaineering ventures in the twentieth century. Much more than an adventure narrative, it deftly explores the relationship between extreme sports and advances in knowledge, making a welcome addition to the new trend in historical scholarship that engages questions of space and place.”
—Michael S. Reidy, Montana State University

“Philip Clements provides an entirely fresh perspective on a highly renowned and much celebrated expedition by putting the practice of science back at the center of the 1963 climb. He clearly demonstrates how the extreme local circumstances on Mount Everest shaped the research programs of the six scientists who appealed to Cold War anxieties in their bid to summit Everest—a space akin to the moon, foreign war zones, or submarine environments.”
—Stewart Weaver, University of Rochester

About the Author

Philip W. Clements is a lecturer at California State University, Chico, where he teaches courses on history, the environment, and sustainability. He directs the Vulnerable Landscapes, Resilient Peoples project, which tracks how communities inhabiting sensitive geographies, including the Solu Khumbu, mitigate the deleterious effects of climate change.
