Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the only available volume to summarize current knowledge of prehistoric regional exchange in the American Southwest and Mesoamerica. As such, anthropologists and archaeologists will find it a valuable source of important data for comparative analysis of regional systems relative to sociopolitical organization.

Book News Annotation:

The first of two volumes providing current information regarding regional exchange on a continental basis (the second volume will focus on the remainder of America). Each chapter synthesizes the research findings of a number of other researchers in order to provide a synchronic view of regional interaction for a specific chronological period. A diachronic view is also provided for regional interaction in the context of the developments in regional sociopolitical organization. Most of the authors go beyond description to propose alternative models for understanding regional interaction.
