Archaeological Thought In America
American archaeology today encompasses a huge range of approaches and draws eclectically on a multitude of academic disciplines. Until now, however, no single book has sought to separate the main strands and traditions of research and present a rounded picture of American archaeological thought in all its diversity. The seventeen essays in Archaeological Thought in America describe recent theoretical advances and present substantive interpretations of prehistoric data drawn from a variety of cultures including Mesoamerica, Central Asia, India and China. The contributors include many of the leading North American archaeologists of this generation.
