The Long Summer: How Climate Changed Civilization by Brian Fagan

I enjoyed the general premise of this book, but felt that the language was too technical in quite a few places. I was also hoping for discussion about climate in relation to specific historical events, which the author did very nicely in another of his books called The Little Ice Age.
