Summary

An ideal companion for students of world history, Beginnings of Human Society covers history from the origins of humanity to the invention of agriculture and the spread of agrarian society. It outlines the emergence of Homo sapiens, human migrations across the world, and the early development of language, tools, shelter, and food. While exploring the history of human adaptation to the environment and the processes that led to the emergence of agricultural societies, the volume also gives thorough coverage of religion, art, and the unique characteristics of hunter-gatherer, agrarian, and pastoralist societies.
