Despite a growing interest in critical social and political studies of climate change, the field remains fragmented and diffuse. This is the first volume to collect this body of scholarship, providing a key reference point in the growing debate about climate change across the social sciences. The book provides a new set of insights into the ways in which climate change is creating new forms of social order, and the ways in which they are structured through the workings of rationality, power and politics. Governing the Climate is invaluable for three main audiences: social science researchers and advanced students in the field of climate change; the wider research community interested in global environmental politics and global environmental governance; and policy makers and researchers concerned more broadly with environmental politics at international, national and local levels.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Climate change is simply too important to leave solely to conventional modes of governance. The kind of theoretical work in this volume can't solve climate problems, nor can it provide clear administrative blueprints for policy makers, but it does show forcefully that in the face of rapid climate change thinking in new ways about many things is now unavoidable both in the United Nations system and beyond.' Simon Dalby, ACUNS (acuns.org)
