Professional reviews

"Professor Fagan's lectures on the origin of man and the creation of the earliest civilizations present a subject surrounded by religious, social, and scientific controversy. From descriptions of the scant skeletal and archaeological remnants, he proposes the most recent ideas about our physical evolution, theorizing on how those changes enabled our success among so many other animals. He speaks with slow enunciation, punctuated by excitement, pauses, and deliberate emphasis to keep his lectures vibrant and dynamic. It's easy to hear why he has been lauded by faculty and students at the University of California, Santa Barbara, for his teaching and academic excellence since 1967. J.A.H.
