The book summarizes a decade of field work in the Pottery Neolithic sites of Nahal Zehora I and Nahal Zehora II (1987-98). Through their rich array of finds, the two sites offer a comprehensive look at the different Pottery Neolithic cultural entities. Building on detailed descriptions of the sites and finds, the three-volume work contemplates socioeconomic issues and offers a general view of the PN in the late prehistoric sequence of the southern Levant. The major role played by the Pottery Neolithic period in establishing and institutionalizing village communities and rural landscapes in the area is discussed, and the culmination of related processes is seen as a "Second Neolithic Revolution." Avi Gopher (Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures of Tel Aviv University) has excavated mainly Neolithic sites and studied their finds, mainly lithics.
