Review:

"Nowhere else are the diverse factors influencing the origins of agriculture summarized at comparably large scales and made accessible to a similar range of non-specialists."-- American Anthropologist

 



"Highly recommended for anyone interested in the history of cultivated plants. . . . A particularly effective textbook. The chapters are each an excellent introduction to the history of plant cultivation and domestication in their region and include much data and many references."-- American Antiquity
