The proposed book is not only a tribute to the work of Bruckner (and indeed also a personal tribute, since Bruckner wrote his book at the Institute of Geography of the University of Bern), but references to Bruckner's book are also a conceptual tool in the proposed book, though used sparingly and thoughtfully. Apart from providing historical context, references may facilitate introducing some complex topics, for instance by first presenting Bruckner's view and then complementing the picture with today's understanding. References can be used for contrast: Comparing Bruckner's methods and data with today's research concepts makes the progress in the field easily understandable. The enormous growth of information since Brukner's time allows a much more detailed perspective on some scientific problems. Or references can be used to highlight similarity. Some aspects have not changed over time. Finally, the book complements Bruckner's studies by adding the arguably most interesting and certainly most relevant period, the past 120 years.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Broennimann ... provides a synthesis of the climate of the last three centuries based on state-of-the-art climate data and analyses. ... No other book has so comprehensively described the climate of this period using such a breadth of data sources and analysis tools. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (J. Schoof, Choice, Vol. 53 (9), May, 2016)

"I found this to be a rewarding and very interesting book. ... this is an excellent and informative book, well-written and presented. I would strongly recommend it for anyone studying, researching or merely interested in climate and climate changes over the past millennium or so. It also attempts to place climate research into a historical perspective, which is both useful and interesting." (Giles Young, The Holocene, Vol. 26 (9), 2016)
