The Horse, the Wheel, and Language: How Bronze-age Riders from the Eurasian Steppes Shaped the Modern World

£24.99

Product description

The Horse, the Wheel, and Language: How Bronze-age Riders from the Eurasian Steppes Shaped the Modern World
David W Anthony
Princeton University Press, Princeton & Oxford, 2007.
Hardback; 165 x 240 mm; dark green boards with gold titles on spine; xii & 553 pages. Original unclipped dust jacket. Illustrations and maps in monochrome.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound and tight. There is a mark on the recto of the front free endpaper where a small label has been removed.
David W. Anthony is professor of anthropology at Hartwick College. He is the editor of The Lost World of Old Europe (Princeton). He has conducted extensive archaeological fieldwork in Ukraine, Russia, and Kazakhstan.
Linking prehistoric archaeological remains with the development of language, David Anthony identifies the prehistoric peoples of central Eurasia's steppe grasslands as the original speakers of Proto-Indo-European, and shows how their innovative use of the ox wagon, horseback riding, and the warrior's chariot turned the Eurasian steppes into a thriving transcontinental corridor of communication, commerce, and cultural exchange. He explains how they spread their traditions and gave rise to important advances in copper mining, warfare, and patron-client political institutions, thereby ushering in an era of vibrant social change.
The book is probably aimed at an academic rather than a general readership so will be of interest to all studying in this field.
