From the blurb: "The influence of natural conditions on the numbers, size, movements and attainments of human groups has been especially evident at those places and times when these conditions have been markedly changing. The landscapes between the Mediterranean and the valley of the Indus have undergone many alterations since the climax of the last Ice Age, some 20,000 years ago; lakes have filled and dried out, rivers have shifted their courses and spread into deltas, lowlands have been flooded and deserts created, forests have receded and advanced. These changes, which manifestly affected the inhabitants and their ways of life, are of particular historical moment as they coincided with crucial early experiments in the arts of agriculture and domestication, of irrigation, architecture, metallurgy, commerce, and the building of cities. This is a collection of recent observations on the nature and extent of these changes of environment, by scholars from eight countries and several disciplines."
