Environmental history of early modern times is a seminal and
lively field of historical research. Ten concise essays
provide an overview of current debates on topics as
historical climatology and climate reconstruction, coping
with disaster, land use and agricultural knowledge, forest
history, urbanization as well as the perceptions of (alpine)
nature, and societal dealing with water and rivers.

Taken together, the contributions establish early modern studies as a promising laboratory for new avenues in environmental history.

Martin Knoll teaches modern history at TU
Darmstadt, Germany.

Reinhold Reith is Professor for economic, social and
environmental history at the Department of History at the
University of Salzburg, Austria.
