Compiled in honor and celebration of veteran anthropologist Harold C.
Fleming, this book contains 23 articles by anthropologists (in the general
sense) from the four main disciplines of prehistory: archaeology,
biogenetics, paleoanthropology, and genetic (historical) linguistics.
Because of Professor Fleming's major focus on language - he founded the
Association for the Study of Language in Prehistory and the journal
Mother Tongue - the content of the book is heavily tilted toward the
study of human language, its origins, historical development, and taxonomy.
Because of Fleming's extensive field experience in Africa some of the
articles deal with African topics. This volume is intended to exemplify the
principle, in the words of Fleming himself, that each of the four
disciplines is enriched when it combines with any one of the other four.
The authors are representative of the cutting edge of their respective
fields, and this book is unusual in including contributions from a wide
range of anthropological fields rather than concentrating in any one of them.
