Winner of the AAP PSP Award for Archaeology and Anthropology2005

A Choice Outstanding Academic Title of theYear

Peter Bellwood - 2006 SAA Book Award - The Society forAmerican Archaeology annually awards a prize to honor a recentlypublished book that has had, or is expected to have, a major impacton the direction and character of archaeological research, and/oris expected to make a substantial contribution to the archaeologyof an area.

"Do not be misled by the humble title of Bellwood's book ...this volume stands alone in its scope and depth ... No student ofanthropology, irrespective of subfield, should leave this bookunread. It is and will remain one of the most importantanthropological volumes of the 21st century."Choice

"This book is a superb advertisement for archaeology as part ofa multidisciplinary approach to the problem of how, where, and whyour ancestors settled to plough and pasture." Times HigherEducation Supplement

"Bellwood is not afraid to challenge the establishedorthodoxy. This is a stimulating and thought-provoking assessmentof one of the most important questions in archaeology today."Peter Bogucki, Princeton University

"This wonderful book is a fascinating treasure-house ofinformation about human history since the origins of agriculture.It deserves to be a standard reference for archaeologists, linguists, geneticists, and anthropologists interested in theformation of the modern world." Jared Diamond, Universityof California, Los Angeles; author of Guns, Germs, andSteel

"A tour de force of historical anthropology. Rarely does oneencounter a book with the sweeping historical scope of PeterBellwood's convincing worldwide synthesis of agriculturalorigins and population dispersals." Patrick Kirch, University of California, Berkeley

"Global in its scope, Peter Bellwood's First Farmersboldly correlates the spreads of early farming with episodes ofhuman population and language dispersal. It offers a powerfullycoherent perspective, which challengingly sets one of the greatthemes of human history in a new and simplified vision."Colin Renfrew, University of Cambridge

"Bellwood is a master at summarising complex information... thereal strength of this volume is that it will make accessible tostudents such a wide range of data and interpretations." NewBook Chronicle

"Unlike many books, Bellwood's represents the cogentunfolding of a complex argument that draws on disparate types ofinformation ... It is certainly the most scholarly, single-authoredreview of global agricultural origins on the market." AustrlianArchaeology

"The book certainly contains a good deal of interesting data andanalysis." Anthropology in Action


"First Farmers: the Origins of Agricultural Societies" offers readers an understanding of the origins and histories of early agricultural populations in all parts of the world. This book: uses data from archeology, comparative linguistics, and biological anthropology to cover developments over the past 12,000 years; examines the reasons for the multiple primary origins of agriculture; focuses on agricultural origins in and dispersals out of the Middle East, central Africa, China, New Guinea, Mesoamerica and the northern Andes; and, covers the origins and dispersals of major language families such as Indo-European, Austronesian, Sino-Tibetan, Niger-Congo and Uto-Aztecan.
