Pressestimmen"Davis has given us a book of substantial contemporary relevance as well as great historical interest." -- Amartya Sen, New York Times "A masterly account of climactic, economic and colonial history." - New Scientist "Generations of historians largely ignored the implications [of the great famines of the nineteenth century] and until recently dismissed them as 'climactic accidents'... Late Victorian Holocausts proves them wrong." - LA Times Best Books of 2001 "David, a brilliant, maverick scholar, sets the triumph of late-nineteenth-century Western imperialism in the context of the catastrophic El Nino weather patterns at that time ... This is groundbreaking, mind-stretching stuff." - The Independent "Wide Ranging and compelling ... a remarkable achievement." - Times Literary Supplement
