KIRKUS REVIEW

Written under the auspices of UNESCO and planned by an international body of experts, this first volume is a bold, brilliantly balanced, forthrightly mind-bracing work. The disciplines used are those of anthropology, archeology and cultural history. The book is divided into two parts and the first tackles the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic periods, while the second covers the Bronze Age. Many maps, in-text line cuts and over 50 pages of half tones are all part of this mammoth voyage into the past that can be stirring and stimulating even as it is comprehensive and exact.
