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.
