Reviews: Times Literary Supplement-March 3, 2023


Times Literary Supplement @TheTLS (March 3, 2023) – Peter Frankopan likes to take the long view.

In The Earth Transformed Frankopan’s timeline is considerably longer: he looks at climate change since the formation of the Earth 4.5 billion years ago.
