Climate change and the fall of the Roman Empire

LARRY HURTADO: “The Fate of Rome”: Kyle Harper’s New Book.
The book focuses on a period later than my own competence, and so later than the stated focus of this blog site, but Kyle Harper’s most recent tome is just so good that I have to mention it: The Fate of Rome: Climate, Disease, and the End of an Empire (Princeton University Press, 2017). The publisher’s online catalog entry here.
