Brian Fagan | Clinton School Presents

Interview with Brian Fagan for NPR affiliate KUAR on Clinton School Presents, a weekly dialogue of distinguished guests that visit the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, Arkansas. Nikolai DiPippa, Clinton School Director of Public Programs, sat down with Brian Fagan, Professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara and New York Times best-selling author.  Fagan, an archaeological generalist with expertise in the broad issues of human prehistory, is the author of "Elixir: A History of Water and Humankind," which examines the history of water spanning a period from about 10,000 years ago up to the Industrial Revolution, when people began deep pumping from subterranean aquifers, using fossil fuels.
