Volcanoes in Human History: The Far-Reaching Effects of Major Eruptions

by Jelle Zeilinga de Boer and Donald Theodore Sanders (2005): After an introductory chapter on volcanism, this volume shifts its focus to particular volcanic events and areas of volcanic activity with an emphasis on long-term effects. The authors make it clear that those effects extend beyond the location of the volcano; there are widespread repercussions that influence everything from literature and religion to population migrations and global weather patterns.
