The scope of this book is immense, as is its contribution to the study of archaeology. Within nineteen broad geographical sections, numerous specialists survey the span of human prehistory, examining key social developments, new and emerging technologies, and tracing the movement of human populations across the globe and the development of human experience. The study also comprises a re-evaluation of archaeological traditions and conceptions; each discussion, whether it is of the chiefdoms of Polynesia, the mounds of North America, Mesopotamian Uruk, Mycenaean Greece, Saharan hunters, Hittite Anatolia or Neanderthal Europe, includes a review of key controversies that have interested experts in that area for decades. Within each section there are also analyses of key sites. Supported by numerous colour photographs, helpful illustrations, chronologies, diagrams and maps, as well as panels of text that expand on certain topics, this is an invaluable reference for any student of archaeology and prehistory. The second edition has been fully revised and updated throughout, to take into account new theories and discoveries from around the world, including new sites such as the Maya temple San Bartolo, the earliest cult centre of Gobekli Tepe, Turkey, the royal tombs of Qatna in Syria, and the Chinese city of Jinsha, as well as new evidence for the earliest human ancestors and the dates of domestication of plants and animals. 'A magnificent achievement - Chris Scarre has brought together a brilliant international team to provide the most up-to-date overview of world history. The Human past is absolutely essential reading for all students of archaeology.' - Barry Cunliffe.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Empathy and the Historical Understanding of the Human Past is a comprehensive consideration of the role of empathy in historical knowledge, informed by the literature on empathy in fields including history, psychoanalysis, psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, and sociology. The book seeks to raise the consciousness of historians about empathy, by introducing them to the history of the concept and to its status in fields outside of history. It also seeks to raise the self-consciousness of historians about their use of empathy to know and understand past people. Defining empathy as thinking and feeling, as imagining, oneโ€™s way inside the experience of others in order to know and understand them, Thomas A. Kohut distinguishes between the external and the empathic observational position, the position of the historical subject. He argues that historians need to be aware of their observational position, of when they are empathizing and when they are not. Indeed, Kohut advocates for the deliberate, self-reflective use of empathy as a legitimate and important mode of historical inquiry. Insightful, cogent, and interdisciplinary, the book will be essential for historians, students of history, and psychoanalysts, as well as those in other fields who seek to seek to know and understand human beings.

This book examines systematically both the theoretical and practical issues that have characterized the discipline over the past two centuries. Some of the historically most consequential mistakes in archaeology are dissected and explained, together with the effects of the related controversies. The theoretical basis of the discipline is deliberated in some detail, leading to the diagnosis that there are in fact numerous archaeologies, all with different notions of commensurability, ideologies, and purposes. Their various perspectives of what archaeology is and does are considered and the range of views of the human past is illuminated in this book. How humans became what they are today is of profound importance to understanding ourselves, both as a species and individually. Our psychology, cognition, diseases, intellect, communication forms, physiology, predispositions, ideologies, culture, genetics, behavior, and, perhaps most importantly, our reality constructs are all the result of our evolutionary history. Therefore the models archaeology--especially Pleistocene archaeology--creates of our past are not just narratives of what happened in human history; they are fundamental to every aspect of our existence.

Rob Swigartโ€™s latest work humanizes the rapid transition to agriculture and pastoralism with a grounding in the archaeological record.
