Population and nutrition : an essay on European demographic history by Massimo Livi Bacci( Book )
6 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study examines "the mechanisms of biological, social and cultural nature linking subsistence, mortality and population, and determining short- and long-term cycles in the latter." The geographical focus is on Europe. "The picture that emerges casts doubt upon the existence of any long-term interrelationship between subsistence or nutritional levels and mortality, showing that the level of the latter was determined more by the epidemiological cycles than by the nutritional level of the population. The permanent potential conflict between food supply and population growth was also mediated by the biological adaptability of the human species to nutritional stress. In the short term the synergy between famine and epidemic infections in determining recurrent mortality crises is evident, but their impact starts declining in frequency and intensity in the eighteenth century."
