The book is devoted to the ceramics from the late Eneolithic culture Krivodol-Sălcuţa. The data on 393 vessels from the richest museum collections from different settlements of the culture is gathered and analyzed. Presented along with them are 253 vessels from two settlements from the previous stage  the early Eneolithic period, which are used as a basis for tracking the changes in the ceramic production within the Eneolithic period. Based on the results from the analysis, the chronological position of the various settlements is determined.
    An especially interesting result, which gives information on the changes in the organization of the ceramic manufacturing is the determined tendency towards standardization of the vessels during the late Eneolithic period. Unlike the early period, where there is a large variety of shapes, sizes and proportions, during the Late Eneolithic period, the variety decreases. The shapes become more and more simple and unified and in terms of size, three groups of pottery are clearly discerned 
 large, medium and small. These changes reflect the general changes in the structure of the Eneolithic societies during the Late Eneolithic period occurring under the influence of the development of metallurgy and the trade with metal  an early stage in the transformation of ceramics into a trade good.
