Subsistence crises differ greatly in the Old and New World during pre-industrial times. In New Spain, bad harvests led to shortages, but not famines that caused massive increases in mortality rates. In this book, the authors take into account economic, climatic, and demographic conditions to contrast subsistence crises of the European continent with that of the American.
