Summary In this collection of 29 articles, leading researchers and a generation of new scholars join together in questioning the dominant opposing dichotomy in Eurasian archaeology of the 'steppe and sown, ' while forging new approaches which integrate local and global visions of ancient culture and society in the steppe, mountain, desert and maritime coastal regions of Eurasia. This ground-breaking volume demonstrates the success of recently established international research programs and challenges readers with a wide variety of fresh new perspectives. The articles are conveniently divided into four sections on Local and Global Perspectives, Regional Studies, New Directions in Theory and Practice, and Paleoecology and Environment, and cover a broad period from the Copper Age to early Mediaeval times in the Independent States of the former USSR, as well as Turkey, China and Mongolia
