New popular science book about climate history

Fredrik Charpentier Ljungqvist, a historian and palaeoclimatologist in IHOPE, has just published a popular science book about how the climate on Earth has varied since the end of the last Ice Age and how the climate changes have affected mankind throughout the course of history. The new book Klimatet och människan under 12 000 år (Stockholm, Dialogos, 2017: 456 pages) is richly illustrated in colour and written in Swedish for a general audience. It presents and synthesises the latest research in climate history and highlights the relevance of climate history in our present time of anthropogenic global warming.
