Takes both chronological and regional approaches to describe 40,000 years of Australian Aboriginal cultures, languages, and practices. Discusses longstanding archaeological issues, such as the timing of the first colonization and interpretation of prehistoric rock art, in light of recent discoveries. Describes the emergence of toolmaking and the expansion of ceremonial exchanges, and addresses contemporary issues such as Aboriginal control over fieldwork. Mulvaney's career in archaeology spans some 50 years. Kamminga has conducted fieldwork in Australia for 25 years. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
