This is a very complete discussion of events in the seventeenth century. There is an enormous amount of detail about a short time period. It should have great appeal to the professional historian. As a person who enjoys reading history, I would have enjoyed the book more, it a longer time period was covered.

700 pages of a detailed history of the 17th century that was a slow tedious read. the climate tie in appeared to be an afterthought, but several interesting points were made. drought, excessive rain and climate cooling reduced food supply which affected births, longevity and health substantially.
