Format: Hardcover
Remember Gary Larsen's "Far Side" cartoon of the scientists dropping everything and running outside when the Good Humor truck comes by? We tend to think of scientists as beyond reproach - but they're not. They're just as emotional and jumpy as the rest of us, especially when their pet doctrines get called into question.
In Science the drill is to glom onto the accepted belief system and hang on for dear life. God forbid some punky upstart like Fritjof Capra should come along and write a smart-alecky book about how Vedic texts described the same tenets as Quantum Physics a coupla thousand years ago. Or Rupert Sheldrake would have the nerve to point out that the DNA emperor has not clothes. Howls of derision. Calls for book burning in the journal "Science". Yellink und screamink.
Now I don't think it takes 900+ pages to make a point. Probably 150 would have been adequate to get everybody's bowels in an uproar. The 2-cassette audio abridgement seems to do a pretty good job. As far as the actual validity of the overall argument - who knows? The evidence proposed is probably just as valid as the official party line.
It is important to remember that all scientific revolutions go through pretty much the same drill: Scorn and derision towards those presenting novel or contrary opinions, followed by fear, panic and banishment of those individuals when it begins to appear that empirical data is supporting the new theories, then total abandonment of previously cherished notions, accompanied by jumping on the bandwagon with abandon while announcing that they'd been supporting the new idea all along.
So it's really the process that's important here. Hey, sit back and enjoy the show!

Format: Hardcover
I almost gave up on reading this book, but I'm glad I didn't. Part I was definitely dry reading except for the Sheguiandah, Canada section which was interesting enough to make me forget about the writing style. Part II of the book was much easier to read. Bits of humor did make it through the writing style (grown men throwing elephant dung at one another; goldminers and artifacts in poker games; erstwhile poets!?!). The appendices and bibliography are very informative. Chapters 9 and 10 (Peking Man and Cryptozoology) made the purchase of the book worth while for me. I found one error (p.320, l.6 at the end of the line - "there" should be "their"). On the whole, I give the book 3 stars and recommend it. A tremendous undertaking, well done. My commendations to the authors.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Dr. C. Gillooly (bitedoc@msn.com) on Nov. 10 1998
Format: Hardcover
I was impressed by the thoroughness of the documentation and resource material. It is essential to good science that all of the data and background facts be available for all to evaluate. On the contrary, very few anthropology courses even suggest that this material exists. The point that the authors have well presented is that hominid paleoarcheology is one of the most subjective and "educated-guess-filled" realms of science, based on precious, relatively scarce, "hard" evidence. It is good science to continually question the favored theories; and, in general, the book is successful in its correct attempt to insert the selectively forgotten data of the history of mankind into the record for objective consideration. Any truly scientific mind should appreciate it as such.

Format: Hardcover
I can't as easily dismiss the facts presented in this book as some negative reviewers. The book, though scholarly size, leaves holes unexplained. I don't come to the same conclusions as the authors regarding the age of humankind. Though my religious views differ greatly it is hard to dismiss the fact that something is fishy with the Evolution religion as we know it. This book is thought provoking at least and certainly provides a detailed if not factual arguement. Great fodder for coffee break debates at the office ;-)

I think that every archeology undergrad should find this of benefit. But don't expect Eric Von Danican. It will be slow going for most of you. But I do appreciate what the author is saying, and it's very, very valid. I even got some cartoon ideas out of it!

Format: Hardcover
Wade Tarzia published an extensive review of this book in _Creation/Evolution_ 34:13-25, 1994 (National Center for Science Education), also available on-line at "Doug's Archaeology Pages" website. Here are some key extracts from that review:
---------------------------------------------------------------
...Despite all this hard work, I think the book falls short of a scientific work primarily (but not entirely) because (1) its arguments abandon the testing of simpler hypothesis before the more complex and sensationalistic ones, and (2) the use of so many outdated sources is inadequate for a book that seeks to overturn the well-established paradigm of human evolution -- scholars must not work in isolation, especially today, when multi-disciplinary approaches are needed to remain on the cutting edge of knowledge. However, for researchers studying the growth, folklore, and rhetoric of pseudo-science, the book is useful as 'field' data. ... Forbidden Archaeology [is also] ... a well-written example of pseudoscience -- its looks like the real thing, a phenomena discussed in Williams (1991, 15) [ _Fantastic Archaeology_; see also K. Feder's _Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries_ ] ...
Mass of Details -- The mass of details with attached analyses would require book-length responses from specialized reviewers to confirm or critique. This style is a common diversionary tactic in pseudoscience. Since the authors have not aired their arguments previously through professional journals, as many scholars do before writing such a huge synthesis of material, the task of validation becomes a career itself. Such a style burdens an analysis with long leaps between broad assumptions (i.e., scientific cover-up) to the detailed evidence (i.e.
