A groundbreaking and internationally acclaimed work of environmental history tracing the great climate change of the seventeenth century: the `Little Ice Age'. Christopher Marlowe In this innovative and compelling work of environmental history, Philipp Blom chronicles the great climate crisis of the 1600s, a crisis that would transform the entire social and political fabric of Europe.
