The World of the Past (Volumes 1 and 2)

edited by Jacquetta Hawkes (1910-1996) (Wikipedia) (pub. 1963)

I originally purchased these two volumes in the late 1970s. They are a collection of contemporary writings about archaeological investigations. I didn't read the books completely, either then or now; instead, I picked and chose the chapters that interested me. A very good collection!

Also see the Celebrating Jacquetta Hawkes blog.

The Pleistocene Redemption

by Dan Gallagher (pub. 1997)

(I'm writing this in 2015.) I heard of this book, was interested in genomics, and was eager to get my hands on a copy, which I wasn't able to do. Finally, I discovered the author's E-mail address and he kindly sent me an electronic version of the book. The story was not bad, but, looking back, I largely agree with what A.L. Sorois had to say in this 1999 review.
