"Methods"

Bernhard Brosius, the author of "From Çayönü to Çatalhöyük" has exhaustively described the principles he used in his
book: "Structures of History" (available only in German under the title "Strukturen der Geschichte"). There, the "logical-historical method" of Marx is presented in a compact way, also referring to the latest archaeological discoveries.

The publisher's description of the book can be read on http://www.neuerispverlag.de/verweis.php?nr=9


"Ancient Communism"

In October 2012, the historian and archaeologist Dieter Reinisch published an anthology containing original texts on ancient communism (available only in German under the title "Urkommunismus").
