abstract
"Using case studies from around the globe and multiple time periods, Smith makes the case that abundance provides an essential explanatory perspective on ancient peoples' choices and activities. Focusing on plentitude enables the understanding of cohesive behaviors that were equally important for the development of social complexity"--Provided by publisher.
