About the Author

Mark W. Allen is Professor of Anthropology at California State Polytechnic University at Pomona, USA.

He co-edited The Archaeology of Warfare: Prehistories of Raiding and Conquest and has also recently published a synthesis of prehistoric warfare and violence in California. Terry L. Jones is Professor of Anthropology at California State Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo, USA.

Jones is founding editor of the journal California Archaeology .


*Outstanding Academic Title of 2015*

"In a formidable departure from the status quo, Allen and Jones are to be applauded for assembling these 2013 conference papers featuring cutting-edge scholarship by an impressive cadre of interdisciplinary scholars. The volume's significance cannot be overstated, particularly given that contemporary culture wars (centered on the pacification of the human past) have had an inordinate impact on the study of indigenous conflict and its consequences. The 19 chapters and 26 contributors in this veritable tour de force carry the day by way of their integration of state-of-the-art approaches for assessing ethnicity, sexual selection, carrying capacity, climate, demography, and the archaeological and forensic evidence required to effectively evaluate and/or validate evidence for the long chronology of warfare in hunter-gatherer populations. Summing Up: Essential. All academic levels/libraries."

-R. G. Mendoza, California State University, Monterey Bay, CHOICE Review
