Images of the Past by T. Douglas Price (1997-01-01). On the whole, I would recommend this book for an illustrated overview of the prehistory and geography of the prehistoric world. Worse, some of the information contains factual inaccuracies and fallacy.

This well illustrated, site-by-site survey of prehistory captures the popular interest, excitement, and visual splendor of archaeology as it provides insight into the research, interpretations, and theoretical themes in the field. The new edition maintains the authors' innovative solutions to two central problems of the course: first, the text continues to focus on about 80 sites, giving students less encyclopedic detail but essential coverage of the discoveries that have produced the major insights into prehistory; second, it continues to be organized into essays on sites and concepts, allowing professors complete flexibility in organizing their courses.
  • This was an interesting read. Learned a lot about the evolution of mankind and what evidence there is to support it.

  • I purchased a used book. It was sent out quickly and I had it in ample time for my class. The book, though an older version, was in great shape. I was very impressed with the purchase.

  • On the whole, I would recommend this book for an illustrated overview of the prehistory and geography of the prehistoric world. Unfortunately, the fourth edition is already out of date. Worse, some of the information contains factual inaccuracies and fallacy. For example, on page 90, there is a map showing "Europe" superimposed on the United States, purporting to show the relative latitudes and sizes of the continent and country, an odd inclusion. While the comparison of latitudes is interesting, about one third to one half of Europe is missing including all of European Russia to the Ural mountains, and Iceland (and if we are speaking about political Europe, Greenland, a Danish protectorate. After all, there is no geographic Europe, but Eurasia, the largest land mass on earth). With such fundamental inaccuracies (which would dismay me if this were a high-school book let alone a text marketed as McGraw-Hill Higher Education), how much of the rest of the book can be trusted?

  • This is a wonderful book on archaeology from a world wide perspective. Techniques and time periods are well illustrated with examples taken from work done all over the world. Some of the most famous archeological sites are discussed: Olduvai, Zhoukoudien, Sanidar Cave, Jericho, Cahokia, Teotihuacan, Tikal, Moche, Cuzco, Uruk, Giza, An-Yang, Great Zimbabwe, Knossos, and others possibly more familiar to those with other areas of archaeological interest. This would make a lovely addition to the library of those who have more specialized interests but who want to know more about other areas or who enjoy learning new things about archaeology itself. It's definitely a book I'll re-read, and I don't generally do that.

  • Having needed this book for a class I was pleased at the book for being rather detailed in the information that was needed brfore a test for review. I was rather pleased with this product.
