Archaeologist Brian Fagan shows that short-term climate shifts, far have been a major—and hitherto unrecognized—force in history

Booknews

Fagan (anthropology, UC-Santa Barbara) shows that short-term climate shifts have been a major force in history. He describes how El Ni<~n>o was first identified and the progress scientists have made in defining its role in global weather, and tells how droughts and floods have affected ancient civilizations in Egypt, India, Peru, the American Southwest, Central America, and Europe.
