MEDIA REVIEWS
This volume is an extremely valuable reference and research tool, with much detail and good bibliography. It is also a series of essays on rather more specific subjects. There is no doubt that it fills an important gap in scholarship, and it will be widely used by those concerned with Levantine lithic studies. -- Alison V. G. Betts * American Journal of Archaeology *
The work covers one of the least documented aspects of Near Eastern lithic studies, stone tools made and used in the protohistoric and early historic periods....A large proportion of the work is given over to a typology that is clearly and logically presented, with good illustrations of each major type. This is a valuable reference work, which will do much to provide consistency in future analyses of lithic assemblages from these periods....The second part of the volume comprises essays on production and distribution, function, and style....An extremely valuable reference and research tool, with much detail and a good bibliography. * American Journal of Archaeology *
An invaluable tool for archaeologists and analysts alike attempting to understand life in the protohistoric and historic periods in the Levant. * Antiquity *
Levantine specialists studying the Metal Age will find this book very useful. The last four chapters also are applicable to a general audience interested in culture change. Metal Age lithic data provide an interesting study of how one culture complex interacts with and reacts to the introduction of a competitive system. The book sets a baseline that should encourage additional studies of the largely ignored lithic remains from Levantine Metal Age sites. -- Mark A. McConaughy * American Antiquity *
