Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[...]important work that will be widely read by professionals and students alike. [...] The editors should be congratulated for pulling together this excellent review of the state of the art in hunter-gatherer settlement and subsistence research in archaeology."
(SAS Bulletin, 26:2, 2003)

"Binford's work stopped short of examining evolutionary change in mobility and subsistence regimes over long time spans. Ben Fitzhugh and Junko Habu's edited volume, Beyond Foraging and Collecting, provides this critical next step. Foragers and Collectors is an important work that will be widely read for professionals and students alike despite its high price tag. The editors should be congratulated for pulling together this excellent review of the state of the art in hunter-gatherer settlement and subsistence research in archaeology." (Society of Archaeological Sciences Bulletin; 26:2)
