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.
