MacNeish presents a "trilinear" theory of the origin of agriculture through the combination of three models, which he calls Primary Development, Secondary Development and Tertiary Development. Each type is categorized as having a set of necessary and sufficient conditions leading, by different routes, to food production and sedentary village life. MacNeish's trilinear hypothesis is tested by "hard" sequential archaeological data from the entire prehistoric world. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
