The Ethics of Adaptation

First Edition

Elaine Kelly

  • Detailed case studies of Bangladesh, the Torres Strait Islands and Queensland in Australia and New Orleans in the US bring into sharp focus the ethics and politics of adapting to climate change and how this universal phenomenon is experienced unevenly by the poor and marginalised
  • Interdisciplinary and multi-methodological approach, relevant to disciplines from cultural studies to philosophy and from ecohumanities to international relations
