Editorial Reviews


“Recommended for graduate students and professionals in anthropology and archaeology.”–Choice

“Archaeology, Language, and History should be read by all serious students of human evolution and genetic diversity--areas revolutionized by an infusion of molecular genetics....This book makes it clear that human population geneticists have much to learn from linguistics and anthropologists and need to reevaluate their assumptions about the role of language in human history and population structure. Given that the Human Genome Project now embraces studies of human genetic variation as one of its top priorities, this book is both timely and important--so read and learn!”–Alan R. Templeton Professor of Biology & Genetics Washington University, St. Louis, MO

“This is a remarkable book. Through compelling illustrations the collected chapters dispel any lingering expectations that language and culture and biology might co-vary in simple, predictable fashion. The authors develop subtle and nuanced approaches to understanding human interactions, past and present, in which the very nature of community is at issue.”–Janet Dixon Keller Professor of Anthropology University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Book Description
