Title

Late Victorian Holocausts: El Niño Famines and the Making of the Third World by Mike Davis

Dr. Benjamin Greenstein, Dean, School of Social and Natural Sciences

Description

“The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a very bright light on the stark contrast between the haves and have nots both in the US and globally. This book is a sobering look at the relationship between climate and imperialism as a catalyst for the divide. This is not an uplifting read, but provides some context for the current situation.”
