Gordon Noble's analysis follows the Neolithic period in Scotland from around 4000 BC to the transformation of Neolithic society in the Early Bronze Age fifteen hundred years later. Author(s) :Gordon Noble (2006).

Briefly, the nine chapters cover an introduction to Scottish Neolithic studies and the geography of Scotland; ‘islands in the fast lane’, which postulates an early role for west-coast islands in settlement; ‘burning down the house’, in which fire is much to the fore in the end-game of buildings and monuments; ‘planting trees, planting people’ on long and round barrows in eastern.

This is an account of the Neolithic period in Scotland from its earliest traces around 4000 BC to the transformation of Neolithic society in the Early Bronze Age fifteen hundred years later. Gordon Noble inteprets Scottish material in the context of debates and issues in European archaeology, comparing sites and practices identified in Scotland to those found elsewhere in Britain and beyond. He considers the nature and effects of memory, sea and land travel, ritualisation, island identities, mortuary practice, symbolism and environmental impact. He synthesises excavations and research conducted over the last century and more, bringing together the evidence for understanding what happened in Scotland during this long period. His long-term and regionally based analysis suggests new directions for the interpretation of the Neolithic more generally.After outlining the chronology of the Neolithic in Europe Dr Noble considers its origins in Scotland. He investigates why the Earlier Neolithic in Scotland is characterised by regionally-distinct monumental traditions and asks if these reflect different conceptions of the world. He uses a long-term perspective to explain the nature of monumental landscapes in the Later Neolithic and considers whether Neolithic society as a whole might have been created and maintained through interactions at places where large-scale monuments were built. He ends by considering how the Neolithic was transformed in the Early Bronze Age through the manipulation of the material remains of the past. Neolithic Scotland provides a comprehensive, approachable and up-to-date account of the Scottish Neolithic. Such a book has not been available for many years. It will be widely welcomed.

This book is a must for those who are studying the neolithic cultures of europe. It is also an easy read for those who want it for general interest in the subject.The only criticism is that in the period which the author is writing about there was no concept of countries. While the whole of europe is encompassed within the book the constant referral to Scotland gives a new student a false sense of "position" with regard to neolithic man.
