    Full of sumptuous color photographs, this fascinating volume takes a broad overview of islands as geological and cultural entities, approaching them from every angle: as isolate ecologies, as mini-states, as outposts, as land with a special relationship to water and marine life, as victims of global warming and as “laboratories for evolution.”
