"...a major contribution to recognizing and understanding cultural changes in southeast China that took place during the local Neolithic period known to span about 3000 years, from about 6500 B.P. until around 3500 years ago...The author correctly points out the additional questions and targets for future research that should be the agenda for the next generation of archaeologists. In sum, this volume opens up a new important page in Chinese prehistory that will be of interest not only to specialists in East Asian archaeology, but for all those who are interested in the outcome of the Neolithic Revolution that changed the face of earth." - Ofer Bar-Yosef, MacCurdy Professor of Prehistoric Archaeology, Department of Anthropology, Harvard University
