520    "An illuminating work of environmental history that 
       chronicles the great climate crisis of the 1600s, which 
       transformed the social and political fabric of Europe. 
       Although hints of a crisis appeared as early as the 1570s,
       the temperature by the end of the sixteenth century 
       plummeted so drastically that Mediterranean harbors were 
       covered with ice, birds literally dropped out of the sky, 
       and "frost fairs" were erected on a frozen Thames--with 
       kiosks, taverns, and even brothels that become a semi-
       permanent part of the city. Recounting the deep legacy and
       far-ranging consequences of this "Little Ice Age," 
       acclaimed historian Philipp Blom reveals how the European 
       landscape had suddenly, but ineradicably, changed by the 
       mid-seventeenth century. While apocalyptic weather 
       patterns destroyed entire harvests and incited mass 
       migrations, they gave rise to the growth of European 
       cities, the emergence of early capitalism, and the 
       vigorous stirrings of the Enlightenment. A timely 
       examination of how a society responds to profound and 
       unexpected change, Nature's Mutiny will transform the way 
       we think about climate change in the twenty-first century 
       and beyond."--|cProvided by publisher.
