Review:

"[Dr. Oakley] reviews and evaluates the considerable amount of research that has been conducted during recent years in the closely allied fields of Pleistocene geology (Part I) and Palaeolithic/Mesolithic archaeology (Part II) in the Old World.... [M]eets a very great need in the anthropological literature. This reviewer heartily congratulates Dr. Oakley on his successful achievement. The publication of this book places all who are required to teach the subject of Early Man in the Old World eternally in his debt."

--Hallam L. Movius, Jr., American Scientist

"[This book] has already proved its usefulness as a source in the teaching of palAEoanthropology at the university and college level and as a reference work in the hands of professional physical anthropologists and prehistorians."

--Kenneth A. R. Kennedy, Man

"It is doubtful if any other scholar could have brought a higher degree of facility and authority to the preparation of a book such as this. The clear and logical organization and the massive bibliography make it most valuable as a reference work."

--Donald W. Lathrap, Ethnohistory

"Kenneth Oakley's book is a splendid and unique contribution to the temporal aspect of paleoanthropological studies.... Every reader of the book will join the reviewer in expressing deep appreciation for such a worthwhile, indeed important assessment of the evidence bearing on man's antiquity."

--F. Clark Howell, American Anthropologist

"Oakley is to be congratulated for producing a well-organized and useful reference work."

--T. D. Stewart, The Quarterly Review of Biology

"[A] most significant milestone for the study of early man; it provides for the first time in one volume an authoritative and concise account of many of the dating methods used today and of the main cultural successions in the Old World up to the end of Mesolithic times.... Frameworks for Dating Fossil Man is a textbook of major importance which brings together for the first time the results obtained from the relative and absolute dating techniques in use today, results that Oakley himself not infrequently played a leading part in obtaining. The book presents this evidence with a clarity that makes it indispensable to all concerned with the research and teaching of paleoanthropology."

About the Author:

Kenneth Oakley (1911-1981) was best known for his work in relative dating with fossils. He graduated from University College in Geology and Anthropology, and worked for the British Museum.

His publications include Man the Tool-Maker, and over 100 papers, many of them on analytical methods of dating bones, particularly the fluorine-dating method.
