Times Higher Education Supplements Books of the Year 2014, chosen by Alison StokesOne of The Guardians Best Popular Physical Science Books of 2014, chosen by GrrlScientistThis engaging interdisciplinary study links Tambora s disruption of global weather patterns not only to Arctic melting, famine, and cholera but to the landscape paintings of William Turner, the debts that plagued Thomas Jefferson near the end of his life, the elegiac verse of the Chinese poet Li Yuyang, and Mary Shelley s novel Frankenstein, written in 1816, the Year without a Summer The lessons of Tambora s Frankenstein weather as Wood is quick to point out may carry special weight in today s era of climate upheaval The New Yorker Wood, who intends no hyperbole in his subtitle, makes a convincing case for Tambora s role in causing the most catastrophic sustained weather crisis of the millennium Thomas Jones, London Review of BooksPersuasively entertaining If not the first, Mr Wood s book is by far the best on the subject, and most comprehensive What Mr Wood has achieved in Tambora is to uncover, collect, and collate a great deal of new scientific evidence to bolster his case Simon Winchester, Wall Street JournalThe greatest volcanic eruption of modern times occurred in 1815 on the small island of Tambora in the East Indies It spawned the most extreme weather in thousands of years In what contemporaries described as the year without a summer, its immense ash cloud encircled and cooled the Earth While historians have mostly ignored the decades of worldwide misery, starvation, and disease that followed, Wood The Shock of the Real , professor of English at the University of Illinois, remedies this oversight, combining a scientific introduction to volcanism with a vivid account of the eruption s cultural, political, and economic impact that persisted throughout the century Publishers Weekly Wood broadens our understanding beyond the year without a summer clich Wood s command of the scientific literature is impressive, and than matched by his knowledge of world history during this horrific episode of catastrophic global climate change With the mass of information he has assimilated, he skillfully weaves a tale full of human and cultural interest Ted Nield, NatureThe book is fluently written, tightly constructed around a single event and a short time period, filled with interesting anecdotes about both well known and obscure people, places, and evetns, and connects less than obvious dots F ascinating and easy to read Tambora is also interesting as a timely reminder of how interconnected our world is Peter Gordon, Asian Review of BooksGillen D Arcy Wood s Tambora takes us on a fascinating journey through the world of 1815 17, when particles from the greatest volcanic eruption since the Ice Age lingered high in the atmosphere This meticulously researched and beautifully written book ventures far beyond tales of Mary Shelley and Frankenstein to document an apocalyptic global catastrophe that affected millions of people living as far afield as the Arctic and North America Wood has crafted a powerful, definitive, and thought provoking narrative Brian Fagan, author of The Attacking OceanStimulating and engaging, Tambora provides an excellent overview of the worldwide repercussions that followed the eruption of a single tropical volcano Weaving together an abundance of newly gathered historical information, Wood emphasizes humanity s disquieting vulnerability to natural events This book represents a marvelous piece of work Jelle Zeilinga de Boer, coauthor of Volcanoes in Human History The Far Reaching Effects of Major EruptionsWood makes the compelling case that the global effects of the Tambora eruption have been largely underappreciated and the strength of his argument rests on the accumulation of evidence Tambora is a rude awakening to the potential societal consequences of these fascinating geological events Guilherme Gualda, Vanderbilt University Tambora is a thought provoking and original synthesis by an esteemed scholar that draws together vast amounts of previously unrelated material James
