From Africa to Asia and Latin America, the new era of climate war has begun. As temperatures rise, glaciers melt, droughts intensify and extreme weather becomes more frequent, climate change is expressing itself as greater violence, humanitarian crisis, social breakdown and spreading state failure. In Tropic of Chaos, award- winning writer Christian Parenti travels the frontlines of this gathering catastrophe to reveal its economic, political and military history in a skillful combination of literary journalism and cold-eyed scholarly analysis.
Christian Parenti is a contributing editor at The Nation and a visiting scholar at the City University of New York. He has a PhD in sociology from the London School of Economics. The author of Lockdown America, The Soft Cage and The Freedom, he has written for Fortune, the New York Times, Mother Jones and the London Review of Books.
