Dear Colleagues,


Our new book, which contains several papers of interest to Austronesianists (see contents below), has just come out:



            The Peopling of East Asia 
            Putting Together Archaeology, Linguistics and Genetics 
            Edited by: Laurent Sagart, Roger Blench, Alicia Sanchez-Mazas 


                  Pub Date:
                 20 MAR 2005
                 Hardback Book
                 384 pages
                  (Dimensions 234x156 mm)
                 25 line drawings, 12 maps, 1 plate section and 84 tables


            To order the book, go to the T&F (Taylor and Francis) books homepage: http://www.tandf.co.uk/books/, choose the catalogue link on the left of the page to search for the book to order online. 


            The worldwide information can be found by choosing the ordering link on the left of the page. 

            Orders must be placed to the regional sellers in order to take advantage of the cheapest shipping charges. There seems to be some kind of error  on the site, where two books with the same title (Peopling of East Asia), the same editors and publication date are proposed with different ISBN numbers. The correct one is the one with the ISBN starting 0415, but either will result in the book being ordered.


            Best wishes to all,


            Laurent Sagart


      Blurb: one of the most dynamic research areas in the prehistory of East Asian regions is the synthesis of the findings of archaeology, linguistics and genetics. Several countries have only recently opened to field research and highly active local groups have made possible a raft of collaborative studies which would have been impossible even a decade ago. This book presents an overview of the most recent findings in all these fields. The book should be of great interest to scholars of all disciplines working on the reconstruction of the East Asian past.
