The Past in Perspective: An Introduction to Human Prehistory
Providing a chronicle of human physical and cultural evolution, this is an introduction to the human prehistoric past. Rather than an encyclopaedic, all-inclusive survey of the human evolutionary story, the text presents human prehistory within a framework of themes, issues and debates. Archaeological findings are integrated into the discussion of major themes, and student learning aids include maps which pinpoint the locations of sites discussed, timelines, and chapter summaries.
