About this book

An attempt to render Chinese archaeology more accessible to Western readers through a detailed case study of approximately 16,000 years of cultural development in northeastern China. The author addresses prehistoric sociopolitical processes in the Dongbei region through an analysis of both his and other researchers' field data and demonstrates the potential contribution of conducting archaeological research into anthropology-related issues in China.

Reviews

`The book is a model in methodology and organization, and it is an extremely important contribution to the accessible archaeological data on sites in China. Shelach should be congratulated for successfully conducting archaeological research as a foreigner in China...'
Antiquity, 74:285 (2000)
`Chinese specialists naturally welcome this work, which supplies important comparative material for students of complex societies. ...this book is a significant contribution to the archaeological study of complex societies in general, and it succeeds in stimulating a range of important questions in the study of Chinese complex societies in particular.'
Journal of Anthropological Research, 57 (2001)
