From the Publisher:

The second volume of the authoritative, lavishly illustrated five-volume The Illustrated History of Humankind spans 10,000 BC to 2,000 BC and includes discussion of hunter-gatherers, farmers, the human impact on the environment, and social and gender roles.

From Booklist:

Continuing a beautiful series (Illustrated History of Humankind) begun with The First Humans , Burenhult presides over some 40 working archaeologists in this installment devoted to the domestication of plants and animals--and the cultural expressions of the new way of life. An ill-understood revolution that began with the end of the Ice Age, about 10,000 B.C., agriculture spread worldwide and was previously thought to have originated in Mesopotomia's Fertile Crescent. Not so, apparently: using the latest excavated discoveries, these scientists think it arose independently--though the causes remain murky--in several places, among them, Europe, China, New Guinea, and Mesoamerica. Thus the text is divided up geographically, profusely studded with illustrations of significant sites and artifacts, and carries fascinating features, such as the "The Ice Man of the Tyrol" (revealed by a melting glacier in 1991), which convey a tangible, cross-sectional feel to how prehistoric archaeology asks questions of mute objects. A superlatively designed work that bodes well for titles due to be published during 1994: Old World Civilizations; New World and Pacific Civilizations; and Traditional Peoples Today. Gilbert Taylor
