About this book

Gales, cyclones, blizzards, tornados, and hurricanes – few things demonstrate the awesome power of nature like a good storm. Devastating, diverse, and sometimes appearing completely out of nowhere, storms are also a source of both scientific and aesthetic wonder. In Storm: Nature and Culture, John Withington takes an in-depth and unique look at the nature of storms and the impact that they have – both physical and cultural – on our lives.

Withington shows how storms have changed the course of human history. From Roman times to the modern day, he shows how their devastating effects have wiped out entire communities, changed the fates of battle, and even reset the entire planet. He also shows how beneficial they have been to us: as an important feature of our atmosphere and climate, but also as a source of inspiration for nearly every artist who has ever lived, from Homer to Rembrandt, in works from the Old Testament to Robinson Crusoe. Beautifully illustrated, Storm: Nature and Culture offers a fascinating look at Earth's most fearsome events.
