'Recommended.' - Choice '[A]n important contribution to the literature on how socio-ecological systems experience and manage change ... [t]he book should appeal to a wide variety of scholars interested in the human dimensions of climatic and environmental changes.' - Arctic Journal 'A valuable contribution to the literature on the human dimensions of global environmental change. Scholars, graduate students and practitioners will benefit from reading and referencing it.' - Polar Research 'This volume provides a detailed and thorough examination of vulnerability and adaptation in the northern European Arctic, and serves as a useful reference for stakeholder views in the forestry, fishing, and reindeer herding sectors.' - Lilian Alessa and Andrew Kliskey, University of Alaska Anchorage, The Journal of Polar Record 'Standing out from other climate change vulnerability assessments that do not also include the effects of multiple governance levels (i.e. political and economic globalization) on adaptive capacity to climate change, the book presents a detailed and complex insight into the vulnerabilities of the studied sectors. Further, Keskitalo's examination of stakeholder adaptive capacity in the European Arctic brings new insight and perspective to a mostly North American body of Arctic research.' - Rebeka Ryvola and Elena von Sperber, Carbon & Climate Law Review.
