The Great Derangement Amitav Ghosh


Author Amitav Ghosh Published by The University of Chicago Press ISBN 9780226526812 EAN 9780226526812 Bic Code Cover Paperback


Are we deranged? The acclaimed Indian novelist Amitav Ghosh argues that future generations may well think so. How else to explain our imaginative failure in the face of global warming? In his first major book of nonfiction since ‘In an Antique Land’, Ghosh examines our inability – at the level of literature, history, and politics – to grasp the scale and violence of climate change. The extreme nature of today’s climate events, Ghosh asserts, make them peculiarly resistant to contemporary modes of thinking and imagining.
