At last a new edition of Historical Dictionary of Ancient South America. The first edition, published in 2008, has been out of print for some time, and since much has happened archaeologically since 2008, a new edition is welcome. The chronology in this edition begins as the earlier chronology did: "Sometime before 13,000 BC: First Humans Enter South America"-a concept that researchers on the northern part of the continent find impossible to believe. Of course there is no thought as to where these humans came from or how they got to the very tip of South America at such an early time, but there is proof of them being there. There are entries on just about any topic one could think of, and all are concise and well written. One of the three appendixes lists research institutions of interest by country, and there is an excellent bibliography by topic and source type. This will be an invaluable tool for those researching topics (especially in archaeology) dealing with ancient life in South America. Summing Up: Essential. All readers. * CHOICE *
