Pressestimmen"Overton's book is a model synthesis of current scholarship, superseding all previous work...Overton lays out traditional arguments and their shortcommings, then presents a clear set of criteria for an agricultural revolution...Charts, tables and maps are usually clear and helpful, the guide to further reading is wonderfully annotated, and there is a very complete bibliography. This book is clearly the starting point for all study of the subject." J.J. Butt, Choice
