Summary "One of the most dynamic research areas in the prehistory of the East Asian region is the synthesis of archaeology, linguistics and genetics. Several countries have only recently been opened to field research and highly active local groups have made possible a raft of collaborative studies which would have been impossible a decade ago. This book presents an overview of the most recent findings in these fields."--BOOK JACKET
