Pub. Date: 05/28/2014
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
In the years between 1550 and 1800, serious harvest failure has been connected with a marked increase in the political activity of the ordinary people, and attention has been focused on food riots. This concise survey considers the enormous volume of literature generated on the subject.
