Have you seen World Prehistory and Archaeology: Pathways throughTime yet?

World Prehistory and Archaeology: Pathways throughTime integrates world prehistory with a discussion of archaeological methods and techniques--emphasizing the relevance of how we know what we know about our human prehistory.  It provides the tools to allow for a lifelong engagement with archaeology, and draws students into the process of archaeological research and discovery. 

The author, Michael Chazan, brings students to the cutting edge of archaeological research by presenting the most recent discoveries and theoretical perspectives.  For how we know the past is inseparable from what we know of the past.  His text allows students to see that archaeology is a dynamic field in which knowledge is continually refined through scientific inquiry--while providing a sense of the relevance of archaeology in the contemporary world. 

The cornerstone of this book presents an integrated picture of prehistory as an active process of discovery--where methodological issues are not relegated to the opening chapters alone.  While the introduction to archaeological methods in the first two chapters is necessary, the questions of how we know the past are not abandoned at that point.  In fact, a number of key features--found within every chapter--have been especially developed for this text in order to draw together an integrated presentation of prehistory for students.

So what are you waiting for?  Contact your local publisher's representative today for YOUR review copy and see how World Prehistory and Archaeology will be able to draw YOUR students into the amazing world of archaeological reserach and discovery!
