Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume explores long-term behavioural patterns and processes of change in hunter-gatherer societies from the Lower Palaeolithic to the present. In doing so, this volume questions the disciplinary distinctions between fine and coarse-grain understandings of hunter-gatherer societies in anthropology and archaeology and challenges the perception that these distinctions are inherent to the two disciplines. The volume brings together studies that specifically address long-term behavioural patterns in hunter-gatherer societies past and present. Some of the contributors also combine historical/archival data and archaeological evidence with anthropological work on contemporary hunter-gatherers. All the papers are based on case-studies that, taken together, cover a wide geographical and chronological range. They represent current research dynamics in anthropology and archaeology across the globe (North and South America, Europe and Australia), and a variety of theoretical perspectives. The papers range chronologically from the Lower Palaeolithic to the present, and encompass groups at various levels of complexity of social organisation and degrees of sedentism, interaction with farmers and 'pristine-ness'.

Book News Annotation:

Papagianni (archaeology, U. of Southampton, UK), Layton (anthropology, U. of Durham, UK), and Maschner (anthropology, Idaho State U., US) present papers studying long-term behavioral patterns in hunter-gatherer societies from the Lower Paleolithic to the present. Papers were culled from the 2002 Ninth International Conference on Hunting and Gathering Societies. Essays are presented in three thematic sections of strategies for long-term stability, studying change over the long-tern, and ethnographic analogy. Contributors are from academic institutions from North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Australia. This title contains no index. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co.
