The American School of Prehistoric Research (ASPR) Monographs in Archaeology and Paleoanthropology present a series of documents covering a variety of subjects in the archaeology of the Old World (Eurasia, Africa, Australia, and Oceania). This series encompasses a broad range of subjects—from the early prehistory to the Neolithic Revolution in the Old World, and beyond including: hunter-gatherers to complex societies; the rise of agriculture; the emergence of urban societies; human physical morphology, evolution and adaptation, as well as; various technologies such as metallurgy, pottery production, tool making, and shelter construction. Additionally, the subjects of symbolism, religion, and art will be presented within the context of archaeological studies including mortuary practices and rock art. Volumes may be authored by one investigator, a team of investigators, or may be an edited collection of shorter articles by a number of different specialists working on related topics.
The Cognition and Culture Book Series provides a forum for the field of cognitive accounts of cultural phenomena and investigations that reveal cognitive regularities. The series will include contributions from experimental psychology, developmental psychology, social cognition, neuroscience, human evolution, cognitive anthropology, and cognitive comparative religion as well as cross-cultural studies that emphasize regularities. The primary focus will be on explanations of cultural phenomena in terms of acquisition, representation and transmission involving common cognitive regularities without excluding the study of cultural differences.
