About this book

Analyses the interaction of climate and history, a complex dance of challenge and response involving changing ecosystems, technologies and cultural and social systems. Fagan shows that the entire history of civilisation has been a continual process of trading up - of accepting vulnerability to large climate stresses in exchange for resistance to smaller ones.
