Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

In sum, First Migrantsis a commendable effort to synthesize a growing body of literature on the subject and will serve as a useful and much needed text for courses on the subject. For those generally unfamiliar with different parts of the world and why people moved to and fro, Bellwood has offered an attractive resource and one which should prove useful in that regard for years to come.   (American Antiquity, 1 July 2014)

This is a significant contribution to our understanding of world archaeology.   (Antiquity, 1 June 2014)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The first publication to outline the complex global story of human migration and dispersal throughout the whole of human prehistory. Utilizing archaeological, linguistic and biological evidence, Peter Bellwood traces the journeys of the earliest hunter–gatherer and agriculturalist migrants as critical elements in the evolution of human lifeways.

  • The first volume to chart global human migration and population dispersal throughout the whole of human prehistory, in all regions of the world
  • An archaeological odyssey that details the initial spread of early humans out of Africa approximately two million years ago, through the Ice Ages, and down to the continental and island migrations of agricultural populations within the past 10,000 years
  • Employs archaeological, linguistic and biological evidence to demonstrate how migration has always been a vital and complex element in explaining the evolution of the human species
  • Outlines how significant migrations have affected population diversity in every region of the world
  • Clarifies the importance of the development of agriculture as a migratory imperative in later prehistory
  • Fully referenced with detailed maps throughout

Ce livre est essentiellement fondé sur l'analyse des langues et de leurs relations de filiation. Il utilise également quelques données d'ADN pour reconstituer les migrations humaines préhistoriques. C'est un livre plutôt réservé aux spécialistes.

An Interesting Texbook 19 juin 2014
Par James B. Bryant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is a difficult book for a novice, it is a textbook, but an interesting textbook. I'm an amateur anthropologist and have read the subject for about 25 years. I liked the Horse, the Wheel and the language better because the author made it a little easier to understand. (I know it is a different subject) Dr. Bellwood disagrees with the location of the homeland of the Proto Indo-European Language that the author of the Horse the Wheel and language made a great case for in his book. It is fun when academics say bad things about a colleague's theory using five-dollar words. I don't think Dr. Bellwood made his case on that point.
The book is good because he uses studies from the just released to many decades old to make his points. He deals with many aspects of Homo Erectus in innovative ways that make good sense. He proves his point on migration and is clearly a new thinker. It has been a long journey since Joe Cambell's Primitive Mythology and authors like this are leading the way.

A Book I've Been Waiting For 12 avril 2014
Par happyvalley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The question of how which people got where has long fascinated me. This book begins to answer that, its limitations being the limitations of our current knowledge. As archaeology, genetics and many other fields progress in finds and understanding, the picture will become much clearer. For now, given those limitations, this book is a great tale of human movement across the globe, an astonishing one. With very basic technology and a big brains, normal, everyday humans like ourselves conquered mountains, established themselves in a huge range of climates, and amazingly crossed large expanses of water. Still, it is difficult to grasp how quickly our ancestors peopled every corner, how they managed to find every nook even though they had no sense of where they were going. It leaves the great question of why people apparently were driven to move farther and farther because no one has an answer unless it is truly, simply "because it's there." Where did their ideas come from? How do you build an ocean-going boat just from seeing a piece of wood floating on water? How on earth did people populate the entire Americas in a couple thousand years? I think there are many, many things to be discovered through a variety of disciplines, and explanations we haven't even thought of yet. To me, however,this is THE story, one I revel in learning about. I am delighted to have found this wonderful book which answers many questions and leaves me with many more. It makes me wonder: why are some of the most "underdeveloped" peoples today living exactly where they were 20- or 40- 0r 60,000 years ago, in pretty much the same way? They have been so well adapted to their environment and felt that life was good enough that they did not strive to change much. No one found metal though it was sometime there,no great tech advances were made and so on - until the "first world" came along. Certainly modern medicine was a huge boon to them for comfort, pain and better practices, but clearly they were not going extinct from using their own traditional medicine. Taking a few things they like or want from the outside, they often choose to live the old way. Why? We can give many glib answers but the deep "brain answer" eludes us, who are driven by other forces entirely that take us into space and merge humans and machines. A million reasons from population pressure to getting rich come to mind, but there is something very basic that we are missing. After all, take a child from a very traditional culture in Melanesia, put him in school (plus a lot of other cultural training) and he can easily become a Nobel winner. That is, he is as fully capable as you or I, but may choose to grow yams and raise pigs, happily. Were his people so well adapted for thousands and thousands of years that they would have gone on, basically the same, for thousands more? If so, why? And then, why did other cultures seemingly strive for more and more? Was it simply poor adaptation and inadequate environment? Or something else? The geneticists probably have to answer such things because all the brains are the same, but so far they say they don't understand the workings of certain genes. Will we ever really try to answer such questions when there is so much cultural pressure to alter genes and design humans these days? I don't know any of the answers but love to ponder the questions and hungrily soak up the knowledge of the past we have so far. And, it is truly amazing how much is known compared to 30 years ago. This book is, for me, a wonderful "history",guide, answerer of questions and cause of more questions - and that makes it an outstanding book.

Lessons about the prehistorical populating of the planet 22 août 2014
Par Kermit Carraway - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is the first book that I have ever given 5 stars. It is the book that I have been wanting to read for years. Of course, it could not have been written years ago because much of the research on which it is based results from new advances in DNA technology that are revolutionizing prehistory research. The strength of this book to me is the effort to integrate findings from DNA, linguistics and archeology into coherent pictures of the various movements of people to populate our world. To me, the book fits the niche between the academic treatise and the general public reader. The evidence presented for each case is thorough enough but not overwhelming to the point of being boring. The organization is geographical, but there are significant numbers of crossreferences. And there are footnotes and a bibliography, but they do not intrude on the text.
The author presents a lot of opinions in this book, but those are labeled as opinions and presented with facts to bolster his arguments. This is a work of a developing science. Undoubtedly, some of those opinions will be wrong. Time and more research will help us sort out which are right. However, I think this book is very timely. I liked it enough that I shelled out for a paperback copy for my wife to read (she does not read on a Kindle). The hard copy should also allow me to see better some of the figures in the book (my biggest personal complaint about reading on the Kindle).

Rare Insight 16 octobre 2014
Par William - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
First Migrants is a very comprehensive treatment of an extremely complex and important phase of human cultural evolution. It is one of the rare books that partially succeeds in answering the big question: Why the hell are we here and how did we get here, without resorting to religious myths and fairy tales about creation. The book necessarily delves deeply into the details of the early human movements that brought us to where we are. The reading require focus, but it's worth the effort if you want a better understanding of the "big picture." This amazing travelog appears to be a "prequel" to Bellwood's earlier books -- which I cannot wait to read.
