Editorial Reviews

Review

"The editor, Dillehay, and his colleagues and students of....have produced a seminal volume that will be referenced and discussed for decades....Essential for any anthropologist, archaeologist, or botanist, interested in the origins of New World agriculture or domestic plants, as well as for model-building in this issue world-wide. " --David Browman, Washington University, CHOICE

Book Description

The beginnings of Andean civilization from ca. 13,000 to 6,000 years ago are known for the appearance of the first humans and later domesticated plants and animals, social differentiation, and a sedentary lifestyle, but beyond these developments, the spread of crop production and other technologies, kinship-based labor projects, mound-building, and population aggregation formed ever-changing conditions across the Andes. This book proposes a new and more complex model for understanding the transition from hunting and gathering to cultivation. It argues that such developments evolved regionally, were fluid and uneven, and were subject to reversal.
