Book News Annotation:

International scientists offer empirical case studies of prehistoric human-ecosystem relationships—some of short-term exploitation, others of long-term sustainability—offering lessons for today. Several studies focus on the US southwest and the Middle/Near East. Redman (environmental studies, Arizona State U., Tempe) introduces the trend to re-examine the environmental impacts of prehistoric peoples, and contexts of contemporary decision-making on resources. A current archeological agenda includes building a global database to document human impacts. Supporting graphics include site maps and biodiversity charts.
