Rezensionen
"'Nasty, brutish, and short' was how Hobbescharacterized human life in a state of nature, but for the lastthirty years prehistorians have largely contrived to forget thenasty side. This lively and authoritative volume goes a long way toredressing the balance, giving a superb overview of the moreaggressive side of life in early Europe." Andrew Sherratt,University of Oxford

"There are few more intriguing yet disturbing subjectsthan the origins of human violence. This richly detailed accountprovides dramatic insights into a distant and often violent world,but one that is only too familiar in its contemporary relevance.Essential reading for all who are interested in the humanpast." Chris Scarre, University of Cambridge

"An intriguing and convincing account of violence and conflictin deep antiquity ... The authors have successfully produced astimulating and thought provoking text." ArchaeologyIreland
