about

A new edition of the book that launched Elizabeth Kolbert''s career as an environmental writer--updated with three new chapters, making it, yet again, "irreplaceable" (Boston Globe).

Elizabeth Kolbert''s environmental classic Field Notes from a Catastrophe first developed out of a groundbreaking, National Magazine Award-winning three-part series in The New Yorker. She expanded it into a still-concise yet richly researched and damning book about climate change: a primer on the greatest challenge facing the world today.

But in the years since, the story has continued to develop; the situation has become more dire, even as our understanding grows. Now, Kolbert returns to the defining book of her career. She has added a chapter bringing things up-to-date on the existing text, plus three new chapters--on ocean acidification, the tar sands, and a Danish town that''s gone carbon neutral--making it, again, a must-read for our moment.

Elizabeth Kolbert is a staff writer at The New Yorker. She is the author, most recently, of The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History. She lives in Williamstown, Massachusetts, with her husband and children.
