Abstract "Unstable Ground looks at the human impact of climate change and its potential to provoke some of the most troubling crimes against humanity-ethnic conflict, war, and genocide. The author examines the ways in which resources and global migration patterns will be impacted by climate change and create conditions conducive to violent conflict. This new paperback edition features a new substantive introduction by the author that addresses how recent tumultuous political, social, and environmental events will have a critical impact on these issues"-- Provided by publisher.
