Reviews & endorsements
"It makes the very complex and abundant archaeological record of thsi culture area accessible. It successfully melds processualist approaches to data collection adn analysis with a contingent view of cultural change. It shows how competing hypotheses move interpretation foward. Perhaps most importantly, it is a case study of region that does not have a clear unilineal trajectory from band to state and it forces us to think about how human societies organize themselves in the absence of materially visible hierarchies." Canadian Journal of Archaeology Jonathan Driver, Simon Fraser University
