Description: Ideal for introduction to archaeology and world prehistory courses, The Past in Perspective: An Introduction to Human Prehistory, Sixth Edition, is an engaging and up-to-date chronological overview of human prehistory. Kenneth L. Feder introduces students to "the big picture"--the grand sweep of human evolutionary history--presenting the human past within the context of fundamental themes of cultural evolution. Written in a refreshingly accessible voice, this unique narrative personalizes the past and makes it relevant to today's students. Using a consistent chapter format--"Prelude, Chronicle, Issues and Debates, and Case Study Close-up"--Feder helps students master both what we definitely know and what is still debatable about the complex story of the human past.New to This Edition:* An expanded discussion of techniques in the discovery, analysis, and interpretation of archaeological sites (Ch. 2)* A new section on archaeological ethics* Updated coverage of the earliest human settlement of the Pacific and in the New World (Ch. 7)* A new "Issues and Debates" discussion: Was the Development of Civilization a Good Thing?
