Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen: “... eine umfangreiche Darstellung über sämtliche Forschungen ... Ein internationales Team unter Federführung von Markus Reindel hat die unterschiedlichsten Aspekte untersucht und dadurch eine Vielzahl von neuen und teilweise überraschenden Ergebnissen gewonnen. ... Die am Ende des Buches stehende Zusammenfassung ... bietet so eine hervorragende Quintessenz der jahrelangen aufwändigen Untersuchungen. ... Das Buch ist natürlich sehr wissenschaftlich gehalten (und vollständig in englischer Sprache publiziert) - insofern verlangt dieser Band geradezu einen Nachfolger: ein in deutsch geschriebenes Sachbuch für den interessierten Laien.“ (in: AmerIndian Research, 2010, Vol. 5/1, Issue 15, S. 66)
