With an interdisciplinary scope and a weaving together of global and local climate change concerns, 'Global Warming in Local Discourses' provides an excellent example for the type of collection urgently needed right now. Merging communication studies methods with social histories and cultural studies, this collection offers a range of perspectives on how global warming is perceived, experienced, communicated, and acted upon differently across the world. Quite crucially, it reminds us of the importance of understanding the local challenges, suffering, and response so often overlooked when addressing this global problem, and offers dynamic ways for assessing them.

Across the case studies, essays show that local media and leaders have a vital role to play in effectively communicating climate change. […] The volume will be of interest to upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in anthropology, sociology, and communication studies.
