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.
