"Fascinating." -- The Ecologist "After Copenhagen would be a fitting title for this splendid and much-needed study of change: change in climate and, most importantly, change in and through culture. Leduc casts light on each in turn by combining interdisciplinary analyses with lucid and informed comment that is grounded in Canada but has a global scope... John Livingston's dictum that 'there is no technical answer to a moral problem' is both endorsed and passionately argued for in this admirably researched and deeply visionary book." -- Anne Primavesi, author of Sacred Gaia, Gaia's Gift and Gaia and Climate Change "Through his careful analysis of Sila, Leduc tasks us to develop conceptual frameworks to bridge the gap between indigenous and western ways of knowing to have the inter-cultural dialogues necessary to change the ways we think about climate-human relations... This book is a must read for anyone interested in how we can make the cultural leap needed to solve our present climate crisis." -- Susan A. Crate, editor of Anthropology and Climate Change "Climate, Culture, Change shows eloquently how climate change undermines the ecology of the North and challenges the unique knowledge of the Inuit people. If the government of Canada were to hear all its peoples, through volumes like this, perhaps Canada would begin to meet its international obligations regarding climate change." -- Robert C. Paehlke, author of Some Like It Cold "Leduc's radical, to-the-root rethinking and reframing of the climate crisis is uncompromising and exhilarating" -- Mark Dickinson, Trent University, from AlternativesJournal.ca "Climate, Culture and Change is important reading for minds that can, in turn, influence the hearts and actions of Western populations and their political representatives in our dangerous times." - Christopher Hrynkow, from The Trumpeter, Vol. 27, No. 3 (2011)
