Revolutions, droughts, famines, wars, regicides, government collapses - the calamities of the mid-seventeenth century were unprecedented in both frequency and extent. This book presents the firsthand testimony of men and women who saw and suffered from the sequence of political, economic, and social crises between 1618 to the late 1680s.
