Summary "As a result of a volcanic eruption in Indonesia in 1815, weather patterns were disrupted worldwide for months, producing excessive rain, frost, and snowfall across much of the northeastern United States, Canada, and Europe in the summer of 1816. ... The Year Without Summer examines not only the climate change engendered by the eruption, but its effects on politics, the economy, the arts, and social structures."--Jacket flap
