Rezensionen
"50,000 years of Australian and Pacific archaeology masterfullysurveyed by a new generation of scholars - this is a 'must have'for every archaeologist working in the region."
Matthew Spriggs, Australian National University

"This new collection usefully focuses attention on recentdevelopments in the archaeology of Australia and the Pacific andincludes particularly thoughtful perspectives on the politics ofarchaeology in the region."
Tim Murray, La Trobe University

"Ian Lilley's edited volume is an interesting contribution tothe archaeology of this vast region stretching from WesternAustralia to highland New Guinea, further to the Marquesas and thesmall islands of Micronesia. The interesting quality dervies inlarge part from many chapters' uncommon approach to a regionalsurvey text. In these chapters you will not always find the typicalsummary of current research in an area or time period with theauthor's latest contribution attached to the end. Instead, many ofthe authors present research that moves in a very differentdirection from past work." Ethan E. Cochrane, University CollegeLondon, Reviews in Australian Studies

"This very useful up-to-date collection will be aneffective teaching asset in a variety of area courses on Oceania."Choice

"This book certainly provides a good introduction to currentresearch and issues in the region ... Key research questionsare illuminated by current research with a clear, accessiblestyle."
