9780300208634: Global Crisis: War, Climate Change and Catastrophe in the Seventeenth Century
Críticas:

"Sunday Times History Book of the Year 2013 'In his monumental new book Parker's approach is systematic and painstaking... giving us a rich and emotionally intense sense of how it felt to live through chaotic times.' (Lisa Jardine, Financial Times) 'What relationship does a changing climate bear to global stability? There could scarcely be a more timely question to ask. Parker deploys a dazzling breadth of scholarship in answering it." (Dan Jones, The Times) 'Global Crisis is the production of a scholar who has reflected on what he knows long enough to take on the double task of synthesis and breakthrough... Parker regales the reader with some wild and grim tales, interleaved with thoughtful reflections from those who lived through the crises.' (Timothy Brook, Literary Review) 'My big book of the year has been Geoffrey Parker's Global Crisis on the disastrous war-torn 17th century. It fills in gaps, gives different perspectives - not least on Scotland during the Civil War - and opens new areas of history to explore.' (Catronia Graham, The Guardian) 'In this vast, superbly researched and utterly engrossing book, Parker shows how climate change pushed the world towards chaos... Parker's book is not merely powerful and convincing, it is a monument to scholarly dedication.' (Dominic Sandbrook, The Sunday Times) 'Global Crisis is a magnum opus that will remain a touchstone in three areas for at least a generation: the history of the entire globe, the role of climate in history, and the identification of a major historical crisis in the seventeenth century... Wide-ranging, monumental works of history are rare; this is one of them.' (Theodore K. Rabb, Times Literary Supplement) 'This is indeed a superb and harrowing book, well worth reading for the skill with which Parker summarises the history of pretty well the whole world... a fascinating contribution to history.' (Christopher Booker, The Spectator)"

Críticas:

'Global Crisis is truly global, connecting the dots and making what usually appear as isolated incidents part of a universal chain reaction. Groundbreaking and thrilling.'-Judith Flanders, History Today -- Judith Flanders History Today

Descripción Yale University Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 156 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. How to account for decades of worldwide war, revolution, and human suffering in the seventeenth century? A master historian uncovers the disturbing answer. Revolutions, droughts, famines, invasions, wars, regicides - the calamities of the mid-seventeenth century were not only unprecedented, they were agonisingly widespread. A global crisis extended from England to Japan, and from the Russian Empire to sub-Saharan Africa. North and South America, too, suffered turbulence. The distinguished historian Geoffrey Parker examines first-hand accounts of men and women throughout the world describing what they saw and suffered during a sequence of political, economic and social crises that stretched from 1618 to the 1680s. Parker also deploys scientific evidence concerning climate conditions of the period, and his use of natural as well as human archives transforms our understanding of the World Crisis. Changes in the prevailing weather patterns during the 1640s and 1650s - longer and harsher winters, and cooler and wetter summers - disrupted growing seasons, causing dearth, malnutrition, and disease, along with more deaths and fewer births. Some contemporaries estimated that one-third of the world died, and much of the surviving historical evidence supports their pessimism. Parker s demonstration of the link between climate change and worldwide catastrophe 350 years ago stands as an extraordinary historical achievement. And the contemporary implications of his study are equally important: are we at all prepared today for the catastrophes that climate change could bring tomorrow?.
