Analyses of the ecology, biology and society of past and present-day hunter-gatherers are at the core of this interdisciplinary 2001 volume. Since the seminal work of Man the Hunter in 1968, research in these three areas has become increasingly specialised, and the lines of communication between academic disciplines have all but broken down. This volume aims to re-establish an interdisciplinary debate, presenting critical issues commanding an ongoing interest in hunter-gatherer research, covering evolution and history, demography and biology, technology, social organisation, art and language of diverse groups. As a reference text, this book will be useful to scholars and students of social anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology and human sciences.
