From the Publisher"50,000 years of Australian and Pacific archaeology masterfully surveyed by a new generation of scholars - this is a 'must have' for every archaeologist working in the region."
Matthew Spriggs, Australian National University
"This new collection usefully focuses attention on recent developments in the archaeology of Australia and the Pacific and includes particularly thoughtful perspectives on the politics of archaeology in the region."
Tim Murray, La Trobe University
"Ian Lilley's edited volume is an interesting contribution to the archaeology of this vast region stretching from Western Australia to highland New Guinea, further to the Marquesas and the small islands of Micronesia. The interesting quality dervies in large part from many chapters' uncommon approach to a regional survey text. In these chapters you will not always find the typical summary of current research in an area or time period with the author's latest contribution attached to the end. Instead, many of the authors present research that moves in a very different direction from past work." Ethan E. Cochrane, University College London, Reviews in Australian Studies
"This very useful up-to-date collection will be an effective teaching asset in a variety of area courses on Oceania." Choice
"This book certainly provides a good introduction to current research and issues in the region … Key research questions are illuminated by current research with a clear, accessible style."
