Ice Age Earth provides the first detailed review of global environmental change in the Late Quaternary. Significant geological and climatic events are analysed within a review of glacial and periglacial history. The melting history of the last ice sheets reveals that complex, dynamic and catastrophic change occurred, change which affected the circulation of the atmosphere and oceans and the stability of the Earth's crust.

"This volume will serve as an excellent text for advanced undergraduates in geology and physical geography . . . The book is wide-ranging in both its subject and geographic coverage. It is far broader in scope than equivalent texts on glacial landscapes or glacial processes . . . All-in-all this volume will serve as an up-to-date text on the variety of Ice Age associated environments that resulted in the present global landscape."
-Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology
""Ice Age Earth is a bold effort to review a bewildering array of different datasets, methods and theories. . . . [it] succeeds and provides an interesting read."
-"New Scientist
