Fllod, Famines, and Emperors
  Floods, Famines, and Emperors
El Niño and the Collapse of Civilizations.
(Basic Books, 2001. Now in paperback.)
The first book in three that I have written about ancient climate change, this one prompted by the great El Niño of 1998. Here I began using the approach that has worked well for three books, which combines advances in climatology with state-of-the-art archaeology, some history, and my personal experience in Africa and on ocean in small boats. Floods is now slightly outdated, as science has moved rapidly in the past few years, but it still provides a useful summary.
