Detailed Product Description
CA, 2008, 1st edition.  282 pages, 51 b/w photographs, 39 line illustrations, 16 maps, 19 tables. New hardcover, Pictorial cover so No DJ was issued, book is like New. 

A professional look at the phenomenon of the melting and disappearance of the wonderful Glaciers that have frightened and entranced  mountaineers, and all Europeans, for centuries. There are twenty chapters written by academicians from all over Europe, but thankfully all presented here in English. 

Rather than type out the contents page, we have shot images of the contents, which are accessible below.  

Looking up at mountains, people now see bare, dark rock where white snow and ice once stood—dramatic evidence of the accelerating pace of glacier retreat due to climate change. This groundbreaking work is the first to provide an integrated, multidisciplinary, global exploration of the scientific, social, and economic dimensions of this phenomenon. 

Bringing together contributors from five continents, Darkening Peaks discusses the ways that scientists have observed and modeled glaciers, tells how climate change is altering their size and distribution, and looks closely at their effect on human life.
