Notes: As opposed to Boserup’s Theory (population growth drives agricultural change: see https://joethebookguy.com/shop/archaeology/the-conditions-of-agricultural-growth-the-economics-of-agrarian-change-under-population-pressure/), Sauer contends that early farmers had enough leisure time to experiment with farming and domestication–i.e., agriculture and animal domestication did not originate from a shortage of food.
