Re: Books, articles, etc on water in California and water and climate change for first year undergrad history seminar

Hi Christian,

Take a look at Matthew Booker's Down By The Bay: San Francisco's History Between the Tides. It has a great chapter on agriculture in the SF Bay Delta. Also, the intro to Arthur McEvoy's The Fisherman's Problem is a good way to think about marine ecosystems in CA. Maybe a chapter from Josh Howe's Behind the Curve could be useful for your climate change segment? Just some suggestions--hope they help!

Books, articles, etc on water in California and water and climate change for first year undergrad history seminar

Dear Colleagues,

I am teaching a first year undergad seminar on water. It's a broad course covering a variety of topics such as cities, disease, agriculture and so on. I would very much like to have a week or two on California and perhaps a week on climate change.
