In this study Clive Gamble presents and questions two of the most famous descriptions of change in prehistory. The first is the 'human revolution', when evidence for art, music, religion and language first appears. The second is the economic and social revolution of the Neolithic period. Gamble identifies the historical agendas behind 'origins research' and presents a bold alternative to these established frameworks, relating the study of change to the material basis of human identity. He examines, through artefact proxies, how changing identities can be understood using embodied material metaphors and in two major case-studies charts the prehistory of innovations, asking, did agriculture really change the social world? This is an important and challenging book that will be essential reading for every student and scholar of prehistory.

Book Description:

Gamble examines how changing identities can be understood and charts the prehistory of innovations. Theoretically innovative and supported with in-depth case-studies, this important and challenging book will be essential reading for every student and scholar of prehistory.

Review:

"Origins and Revolutions is an effervescent read that skillfully challenges many of the sacred cows of archaeology. It is rich and deep in the philosophical acumen and attention to social theory for which Gamble is known. He also writes with an admirable sense of humour and irony; he knows how to join humanistic flair with empirical rigour at the dig."
-Robert N. Proctor, Stanford University, Nature

"[Gamble] offers archaeologists of all theoretical persuasions a new way to examine the past, one that is sure to intrigue us for some time to come."
-Pamela R. Willoughby, University of Alberta, Canadian Journal of Archaeology

"... dense with provocative ideas, fresh points of view, an intellectual background that ranges far and wide between academic disciplines and schools of thought ... this book should be read by professionals and graduate students as an eye-opener to alternative narratives of human evolution ... an intriguing book ..."
Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
