Book description

This volume aims to satisfy a pressing need for an updated account of Chinese archaeology. It covers an extended time period from the earliest peopling of China to the unification of the Chinese Empire some two thousand years ago. The geographical coverage includes the traditional focus on the Yellow River basin but also covers China's many other regions. Among the topics covered are the emergence of agricultural communities; the establishment of a sedentary way of life; the development of sociopolitical complexity; advances in lithic technology, ceramics, and metallurgy; and the appearance of writing, large-scale public works, cities, and states. Particular emphasis is placed on the great cultural variations that existed among the different regions and the development of interregional contacts among those societies.

Reviews

'The Archaeology of Early China is the most up-to-date synthesis of major developments in China from human origins to the early Imperial period. Readable and concise, it emphasizes mobility and interaction in different eras and eloquently sets a new standard for critical evaluation of the interpretation of archaeological data.'

Rowan Flad - Harvard University, Massachusetts

'Gideon Shelach’s book is an enormously important publication on archaeology of early China. It is well illustrated and very well documented. All of those who study East Asian archaeology and ancient history, from undergraduates to seasoned researchers, will benefit from reading it.'

Xingcan Chen - Chinese Academy of Social Sciences

'Gideon Shelach’s book offers thought-provoking interpretations about trajectories of social change by highlighting regional variation and interregional interaction. The broad geographic and temporal coverage includes generous descriptions of data that will enable students to evaluate issues relevant to the development of complex societies in diverse regions.'

Anne P. Underhill - Yale University, Connecticut
