Abstract

This book examines the impact of climate change on colonial Mexico. By considering three case-study regions (Chihuahua's arid Conchos basin, the lush Oaxaca valley, and Guanajuato in the Bajio of Mexico) it offers insights into how different societies articulate knowledge about climate and the environment, and how they respond to climatic variability. The study draws on Mexico's rich colonial archives and provides a historical perspectives on the complex relationship between climate and vulnerable societies. - (HC)
