Philipp Blom explains the rise of the modern world

By Sebastian Ritscher

We are excited that Hanser Verlag just published historian Philipp Blom’s new book The World Unhinged. He explains how climate change, industrial processes and migration correlated in the rise of the modern world during the Little Ice Age when Londoners walked across the Thames in winter to see a Shakespeare play. A thing of the past? The German edition entered Amazon’s bestseller list at number 75 (all books).
