Review of Antarctica: global science from a frozen continent, edited by David W.H. Walton

  • John P. Smol


When I agreed to review this book, I assumed I would receive a collation of edited literature reviews exploring various aspects of Antarctic science, similar to several other volumes that are sitting on my office bookshelves. But Antarctica: global science from a frozen continent is not that type of book. Instead it is a handsomely produced volume, filled with a large number of excellent-quality colour photographs and figures, which can just as easily be in a high school or public library as in a university professor’s research collection.
