Archaeologists interested in the study of long-term social change have proposed that specialization and centralization form the development of human societies. Professor Junko Habu presents a case study from the Early and Middle Jomon periods (ca. 4000-2400 BCE) of prehistoric Japan that emphasizes the importance of framing recent and current global environmental problems in the context of the greater human experience.
