Reviews - What do customers think about YEARBOOK OF THE UNITED NATIONS 2001?
Authoritative, provocative, inductive Feb 27, 1998
This book is an excellent overview of current data and interpretations for the origins of agriculture in Europe. Whittle's thesis is that, contrary to the prevailing interpretation, indigenous European foragers adopted farming and were the perpetrators of the LBK phenomenon. He doesn't necessarily prove his point with this book (and he doesn't refute the colonization model either), but he does present some interesting observations and fresh thinking on the matter. I would recommend this book to anyone with some familiarity with European prehistory; especially those with the background to weigh his arguments against the evidence.
