Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fagan shows in this wonderful book how vulnerable human society is to climatic zigzags."―New Scientist

"Even without the contemporary relevance lent the book by the specter of global warming, The Little Ice Age would be an engrossing historical volume."―South Florida Sun-Sentinel

"The Little Ice Age could do for the historical study of climate what Foucault's Madness and Civilization did for the historical study of mental illness: make it a respectable subject for scholarly inquiry."―Scientific American

"A nimble, lively, provocative book."―Booklist

"[A] highly readable and erudite analysis."―Guardian

"An engaging history.... A fascinating account of events both obscure and well known, including the French Revolution and the Irish potato famine, as seen through the lens of weather and its effect on harvests."―Foreign Affairs

About the Author

Brian Fagan is Emeritus Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. A former Guggenheim Fellow, he has written many internationally acclaimed popular books about archaeology, including The Little Ice Age, The Great Warming, and The Long Summer. He lives in Santa Barbara, California.
