This volume includes new research on the theoretical implications regarding the mechanisms of change in the geographical distribution of hunter-gatherer settlement and land use. It focuses on the long-term changes in the hunter-gatherer settlement on a global scale, including research from several continents. It will be of interest to archaeologists and cultural anthropologists working in the field of the forager/ collector model throughout the world.

"[...]important work that will be widely read by professionals and students alike. [...] The editors should be congratulated for pulling together this excellent review of the state of the art in hunter-gatherer settlement and subsistence research in archaeology."

"Binford's work stopped short of examining evolutionary change in mobility and subsistence regimes over long time spans. Ben Fitzhugh and Junko Habu's edited volume, Beyond Foraging and Collecting, provides this critical next step. Foragers and Collectors is an important work that will be widely read for professionals and students alike despite its high price tag. The editors should be congratulated for pulling together this excellent review of the state of the art in hunter-gatherer settlement and subsistence research in archaeology."
