About this book

In 1999, few people had thought to examine the effects of climate on civilization. Now, due in part to the groundbreaking work of archaeologist Brian Fagan, climate change is a central issue. Revised and updated ten years after its first publication, Floods, Famines, and Emperors remains the definitive account of how the world's best-known climate event had an indelible impact on history.
