"Sunday Times History Book of the Year 2013 'In his monumental new book Parker's approach is systematic and painstaking... giving us a rich and emotionally intense sense of how it felt to live through chaotic times.' (Lisa Jardine, Financial Times) 'What relationship does a changing climate bear to global stability? There could scarcely be a more timely question to ask. Parker deploys a dazzling breadth of scholarship in answering it." (Dan Jones, The Times) 'Global Crisis is the production of a scholar who has reflected on what he knows long enough to take on the double task of synthesis and breakthrough... Parker regales the reader with some wild and grim tales, interleaved with thoughtful reflections from those who lived through the crises.' (Timothy Brook, Literary Review) 'My big book of the year has been Geoffrey Parker's Global Crisis on the disastrous war-torn 17th century. It fills in gaps, gives different perspectives - not least on Scotland during the Civil War - and opens new areas of history to explore.' (Catronia Graham, The Guardian) 'In this vast, superbly researched and utterly engrossing book, Parker shows how climate change pushed the world towards chaos... Parker's book is not merely powerful and convincing, it is a monument to scholarly dedication.' (Dominic Sandbrook, The Sunday Times) 'Global Crisis is a magnum opus that will remain a touchstone in three areas for at least a generation: the history of the entire globe, the role of climate in history, and the identification of a major historical crisis in the seventeenth century... Wide-ranging, monumental works of history are rare; this is one of them.' (Theodore K. Rabb, Times Literary Supplement) 'This is indeed a superb and harrowing book, well worth reading for the skill with which Parker summarises the history of pretty well the whole world... a fascinating contribution to history.' (Christopher Booker, The Spectator)"Rezension:
