Auteur: Davis, Mike
Titel: Late Victorian Holocausts
Sub titel: El Niņo Famines and the Making of the Third World
Examining a series of El Niņo-induced droughts and the famines that they spawned around the globe in the last third of the 19th century, Mike Davis discloses the intimate, baleful relationship between imperial arrogance and natural incident that combined to produce some of the worst tragedies in human history. Davis argues that the seeds of underdevelopment in what later became known as the Third World were sown in this era of high imperialism, as the price for capitalist modernization was paid in the currency of millions of peasants' lives.
