Product description

Review

"Wide ranging and compelling...a remarkable achievement." - Times Literary Supplement "Devastating." - The San Francisco Chronicle "A masterly account of climatic, economic and colonial history." - New Scientist "A hero of the Left, Davis is part polemicist, part historian, and all Marxist." - Dale Peck, Village Voice "Davis has given us a book of substantial contemporary relevance as well as great historical interest ... this highly informative book foes well beyond its immediate focus." - Amartya Sen, The New York Times "Davis's range is stunning... He combines political economy, meteorology, and ecology with vivid narratives to create a book that is both a gripping read and a major conceptual achievement. Lots of us talk about writing 'world history' and 'inter-disciplinary history': here is the genuine article." - Kenneth Pomeranz, author of The Great Divergence "The global climate meets a globalizing political economy, the fundamentals of one clashing with the fundamentalisms of the other. Mike Davis tells the story with zest, anger, and insight." - Stephen J. Pyne, author of World Fire
