The Attacking Ocean: The Past, Present And Future Of Rising Sea Levels by Brian Fagan, Bloomsbury, £20 (ebook £11.52).
Emeritus professor of anthropology Brian Fagan points out that oceans have been attacking land for thousands of years.
Sea levels have fallen and risen since as far back as it’s possible to measure. What’s changed is the rate at which all this is happening, in no small part due to our own impact on Earth’s rising temperatures.
Fagan masterfully combines history, science, geology and anthropology to deliver an informative, engaging and thought-provoking read.
