Here is a valuable synthesis of the contemporary knowledge about the state of world glaciers, taking into account the global importance of the phenomenon of recent glacial retreat, its recent evolution especially in the context of global warming, and the social, cultural, and political aspects of their presence and retreat. This book follows an important symposium held in Wengen (CH), where many specialists of various disciplines and from various regions of the world gathered in October 2004. This event was one of the very few international meetings willing to adopt an encompassing analysis of glaciers, addressing both natural and social dimensions.
