Millennial Landscape Change in Jordan  Geoarchaeology and Cultural Ecology, Cordova, Carlos E.
4 Cordova, Carlos E. Millennial Landscape Change in Jordan Geoarchaeology and Cultural Ecology
Tucson, AZ University of Arizona Press 2007 0816525544 / 9780816525546 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Bottom fore corners a little bumped. ; A bright, solid book, DJ in Mylar. ; 9 X 6.20 X 1 inches; 272 pages; "Stands of relict vegetation, soil horizons, and sedimentary deposits along with archaeological evidence suggest that during certain time spans within the past twenty millennia, Jordan was endowed with moister and more vegetated landscapes than the ones we see today. In this detailed volume, Carlos E. Cordova synthesizes diverse information on multiple topics to provide a comprehensive view of the changes in the Jordanian landscape and the many ways it has been affected by human habitation and the forces of nature. Cordova focuses on geoarchaeological and cultural ecological aspects of research, presenting data from physical, chemical, and biological sources. He examines the changing influence of climate, vegetation, and hunting opportunities on cultural exploitation tactics, as well as the effects of the growing population and agriculture on the environment. Cordova argues that an interdisciplinary approach to studying the area is crucial to achieving a true understanding of Jordan’s changing landscape. Chapter topics include approaches to the study of ancient Jordanian landscapes in the Near Eastern context; the physical scene; endowed landscapes of the woodlands; the encroaching drylands; the current and future state of the paleoecological and geoarchaeological record; patterns of millennial landscape change; and the process of interpreting millennial landscape change. The text is abundantly illustrated with photos, line illustrations, tables, and maps, providing a valuable assessment of archaeological developments over the prehistory and history of what today is the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. This volume will be especially welcomed by scholars interested in the archaeology, history, and geography of Jordan, the Levant, and the Near East and by field-school students working on archaeological projects in Jordan."

New York Wiley 1996 0471048631 / 9780471048633 1st Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
DJ shows very light shelf wear. ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. Text unmarked.; Wiley Popular Science; 9.44 X 7.26 X 1.19 inches; 364 pages; "An astronomer with a Jungian streak, Krupp (Echoes of the Ancient Sky), the director of the Griffith Observatory in L.A., synthesizes the study of the heavens with archeology in an intriguing attempt to understand the cultural power of shamans and kings in ancient civilizations. In the tradition of Frazer, Eliade and Campbell, the author seeks commonality in the use of sky myths by shamans from cultures as diverse as the Mayan, Egyptian, Tibetan, Mongolian, Chinese, Turkic, African and Inuit, as well as those of the indigenous peoples of the American plains, Northwest and Southwest. Carefully analyzing sacred petroglyphs, pictographs and statuary, he traces the evolution of culture from hunting bands to the establishment of complex civilizations. The journey includes study of the natural high places of the earth, which direct human awe heavenward toward the sky gods. Alternately, the chthonic depths of caves and grottoes are examined for insight into the traditions of nurturing mother goddesses and fertility cults. Throughout, reference to ancient awareness of the movement of the planets and constellations, especially in regard to the solstices and equinoxes, is highlighted. With an anecdotal style and with reference to myriad illustrations, Krupp enngagingly explores the historic derivation of political control descending from the skies, to rulers. The harmonics of order implicit in the structure of the cosmos, he forcefully contends, are endangered by contemporary reactionary, earthbound cultures, engendering conflicts that are expressed in rising social intolerance and religious fundamentalism.

DJ shows shelf wear and soiling, small chips and short tears, scuffed, price-clipped. ; A tight solid book. Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector. ; Archaeologica MVNDI; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 212 pages; :Series prepared under the direction of Jean Marcade, Professor of Archaeology at the University of Bordeaux. Mesopotamia provides a first class example of the way in which archaeology has advanced historical studies, both in supplying fresh written souces and in revealing unknown perspectives of the first ages of civilization; moreover, the invention of agriculture, the advent of metal an the discovery of writing are among the most stirring events in the epic of humanity. It also affords a splendid example of the progress made by archaeological methods and aims. The special stratigraphy of the Mesopotamian mounds and the many difficulties involved in clearing clay buildings have greatly contributed to more highly disciplined methods of excavation. And the importance of the discoveries in the Land of the Two Rivers has surely earned the so-called "auxiliary" science recognition in its own right."
