An integrated picture of prehistory as an active process of discovery.
World Prehistory and Archaeology: Pathways through Time, third edition, provides an integrated discussion of world prehistory and archaeological methods. This text emphasizes the relevance of how we know and what we know about our human prehistory.
A cornerstone of World Prehistory and Archaeology is the discussion of prehistory as an active process of discovery. Methodological issues are addressed throughout the text to engage readers. Archaeological methods are introduced in the first two chapters. Succeeding chapters then address the question of how we know the past to provide an integrated presentation of prehistory.
The third edition involves readers in the current state of archaeological research, revealing how archaeologists work and interpret what they find. Through the coverage of various new research, author Michael Chazan shows how archaeology is truly a global discipline.

“I am quite impressed with the coverage of parts of the world far away from the author's own research and experience.”
- Robert Tykot, University of South Florida
“Presents a well-digested, well-illustrated narrative of the human career, emphasizing both archaeological tools and products of archaeological investigation.”
- LuAnn Wandsnider, University of Nebraska - Lincoln
“Both my students and I appreciate [Michael Chazan’s] writing style as academic yet accessible.”
- Andrew Wyatt, University of Illinois at Chicago
“The author's writing style is smooth and approachable for students accustomed to today's information-technology permeated world. To my mind, he conveys an understanding of the demands of teaching a very different breed of students that have been educated in multi-media environments. That is a huge plus.”
- Michael Danti, Boston University
“A comprehensive text for both those interested in archaeology and world prehistory. The essentials are there, without the "fluff" of other books on the subject. Great for introductory level students in the humanities and social sciences.”
- Brad Biglow , Florida State College at Jacksonville
“A very good textbook for an introductory archaeological course with an emphasis on world prehistory.”
- Brett Houk , Texas Tech University
