ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
      This major work, the result of collaboration among scholars who worked
        at dozens of sites from the Ural Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, is the
        first volume in English to summarize the massive quantity of archaeological
        data on the Paleolithic occupation of Siberia. Written by leading Russian
        experts and edited by scholars including the late Demitri Shimkin, the
        book presents the results of field studies conducted over some twenty-five
        years.
      It traces the routes of human migration throughout Eurasia, shows Siberian
        lithic industries as they evolved from the Early through the Middle and
        Late Paleolithic, and correlates them with reports from Mongolia, China,
        Japan, and America.
      "A major, singular contribution. . . . Several more geographically
        or temporally restricted texts exist, but none I've seen can match the
        breadth or depth of this massive work."
        -- John W. Olsen, coeditor of Paleoanthropology and Paleolithic Archaeology
        in the People's Republic of China
      "A much needed work marked by uniformly high scholarship and clear
        writing, this will be a standard reference of value for years to come."
