This collection of 11 papers is largely the result of a symposium organized by the editor for a meeting of the Theoretical Archaeology Group. Foley personally and in assembling these papers has made a conscientious attempt to further the rapprochement of paleoanthropology and paleoecology. This is a difficult and often elusive goal, so it is not surprising that this book is uneven and only partly successful. Foley's introductory chapter, "Putting people into perspective,' provides an excellent brief introduction to community evolution and ecology for prehistorians and raises hopes for a generally stimulating, innovative volume. Unfortunately, much of what follows is - from the perspective Foley establishes - either inconclusive or irrelevant.
