The Encyclopedia of Prehistory, with regionally organized entries on each major archaeological tradition, is a comprehensive overview of human history from two million years ago to the historic period. Prepared under the auspices and with the support of the Human Relations Area Files, and an internationally distinguished advisory board, the encyclopedia is written by noted experts in the field and edited by Peter N. Peregrine and Melvin Ember. These volumes employ comparable units of description and analysis, making them easy to use and compare.
Volume 8 focuses on South and Southwest Asia.

"Taking as its purpose 'to provide basic information on all archaeologically known cultures,' the set treats each major cultural region of the planet individually, with entries contributed by an international array of experts. Entries are divided into four sections -- a discussion of the time during which the cutlure flourished, geographic location, diagnostic traits as known from the archaeological record (with subtraditions demarcated as identified), and representative sites -- followed by a list of references." (Choice, 41:6)
