Reviews

Editorial Reviews

'This is an innovative and indeed, thought provoking book exploring the ecological and cultural development of prehistoric island societies ... It is a book for both the archaeologist and anthropologist, and is admirable in making them aware of each others fields of study, but more importantly, the interaction between them that is of tremendous value to both.' ¿ Minerva 'It offers a well-written, wide-ranging and up-to-date coverage of important themes in Mediterranean prehistory, and a critical development of the starting point in Island biogeograophy. It reads well and will be much used.' ¿ Landscape History 'Patton's book is both timely and welcome because it compiles and summarizes much of the research in Mediterranean island biography, and thereby provides a good introduction to the subject.' ¿ Thomas F.Strasser, California State University
