Climate Change and Cultural Dynamics: A Global Perspective by David G. Anderson

By David G. Anderson

The center Holocene epoch (8,000 to 3,000 years in the past) used to be a time of dramatic alterations within the actual global and in human cultures. throughout this span, weather conditions replaced swiftly, with cooling within the excessive to mid-latitudes and drying within the tropics. in lots of components of the realm, human teams grew to become extra complicated, with early horticultural platforms changed by way of extensive agriculture and small-scale societies being changed by means of greater, extra hierarchial corporations. weather swap and Cultural Dynamics explores the reason and influence courting among climatic swap and cultural ameliorations around the mid-Holocene (c. 4000 B.C.).* Explores the function of climatic switch at the improvement of society around the globe* Chapters element varied realms* Co-written by way of famous archaeologists and paleoclimatologists for non-specialists
