May 28, 2014

Congratulations to Dr. Peter Jordan et al. on the publication of their new book! Peter Jordan is co-editor and has contributed several chapters.

Title: "The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology and Anthropology of Hunter-Gatherers". Edited by Vicki Cummings, Peter Jordan, and Marek Zvelebil.

This book has chapters by many BHAP Team and Advisory Board members including Drs. Robert Bettinger, Junko Habu, Peter Hommel, Mark Hudson and Rick Schulting.

About this book: For more than a century, the study of hunting and gathering societies has been central to the development of both archaeology and anthropology as academic disciplines, and has also generated widespread public interest and debate. The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology and Anthropology of Hunter-Gatherers provides a comprehensive review of hunter-gatherer studies to date, including critical engagements with older debates, new theoretical perspectives, and renewed obligations for greater engagement between researchers and indigenous communities. Chapters provide in-depth archaeological, historical, and anthropological case-studies, and examine far-reaching questions about human social relations, attitudes to technology, ecology, and management of resources and the environment, as well as issues of diet, health, and gender relations - all central topics in hunter-gatherer research, but also themes that have great relevance for modern global society and its future challenges.

The Handbook also provides a strategic vision for how the integration of new methods, approaches, and study regions can ensure that future research into the archaeology and anthropology of hunter-gatherers will continue to deliver penetrating insights into the factors that underlie all human diversity.

Readership: Students and scholars interested in the anthropology and archaeology of hunter-gatherers, including the development of human social relations, technology, ecology, resources and environment management, diet, and gender relations.
