John M. D. Pohl, Fowler Museum of Cultural History, UCLA

Deborah Nichols, Dartmouth College
'Lavish illustrations and tables, charts, graphic recreations, and extended photo captions … make this book most useful for students who may not have a lot of background knowledge'
Phil Wanyerka, Cleveland State University
'An impressive work that fills an important niche in the literature'
Gary Feinman, Field Museum of Natural History
