BOOK REVIEW • Sea Level Rise: History and Consequences

Orrin H. Pilkey
First Paragraph

This propitious volume arrives at a time of increasing concern about the state of our shorelines. Generally written at a level for advanced undergraduates, this well edited, multi-author volume includes chapters by some of the biggest players in the specialty, including Vivien Gornitz, W.R. Peltier and Stephen Leatherman. Sea Level Rise is the best available volume for the nonspecialist and specialist alike to come up to speed on this important topic.
