Abstract

Climate change currently affects several states and their citizens around

the globe. As sea level rise is threatening to make some states completely


uninhabitable, small island states serve as examples of states at the greatest


risk. This review essay analyzes three recent contributions to the literature


on climate change and the future of endangered populations. These books


offer timely contributions regarding the prospects of threatened nations, as


well as addressing the shape and content of global governance in the era of


Anthropocene. The authors suggest some interesting and novel innovations,


particularly for updating the international legislation surrounding climate


governance. At the same time, given how unpredictable a process climate


change is, the solutions we come up with should perhaps be bolder.
