Editorial Reviews

Review

'... there can be no doubt that for the student or general reader who needs an overview of world prehistory this is essential reading.' Geography

'It is amazing how much information, and how many ideas, Professor Clark managed to pack into this book. Nothing of importance seems to have been omitted ... Similarly there are few prehistorians who could have written such a wide-ranging survey and yet have fallen into so few errors ... Taken as a whole, World Prehistory is the most up-to-date survey not only of world prehistory as a whole but of the individual areas with which it is concerned.' The Times Literary Supplement

Book Description

The origins and development of human culture throughout the world are re-examined in this new, generously illustrated edition of Clark's famous work. There is much more detailed and up-to-date coverage of the various territories, particularly America and Australasia plus a select bibliography of reference to the main sources used.

I'm surprised at how relevant this text still is given the time that's passed since its publication. Much has occurred in the fields of anthropology and archaeology in the years since, but Clark has presented us with a durable baseline of information that makes for a solid overview of world prehistory even today.

A good intro to prehistory but the author assumes you have some knowledge of the subject and dives right in citing references and using terms that may require the reader to do some supplemental reading.
