ORIGINS & SPREAD AGRIC PAST PB
Smithsonian, 17 abr. 1996 - 594 páginas
"The transitions from hunting and gathering to agriculture had revolutionary consequences for human society, leading to the emergence of urban civilizations, and ultimately, to humanity's dependence on relatively few domesticated animals and plants. Though the subject has been studied extensively, results have typically been interpreted in terms of local cultural sequences. By contrast, The Origins and Spread of Agriculture and Pastoralism in Eurasia provides a continental-scale framework for examining the agricultural "revolution" from its inception nearly 10,000 years ago."--Back cover.
