Editorial Reviews


Sassaman and Holly have effectively woven the central theme of historical process throughout. Despite addressing different sites, regions, methods, and questions, the chapter authors offer a clear and articulate discussion of the hunter-gatherer past and provide thought-provoking new directions for future studies.” – Carolyn Dillian, Southeastern Archaeology


“The line of investigations and theoretical approaches employed in this volume is the wave of the future and should serve as a model for the next decade of hunter-gatherer research.”—Thomas Emerson, co-editor of Archaic Societies: Diversity and Complexity across the Midcontinent

"A prime example of what an edited volume should be."—North Atlantic Archaeology
--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

Hunter-Gatherer Archaeology as Historical Process seeks to show how hunter-gatherer societies were more complex than simple remnants of a prehistoric past. Combining the latest empirical studies of archaeological practice with the latest conceptual tools of anthropological and historical theory, this volume will be of great interest to anyone involved with the study of foraging peoples.
