Editorial Reviews

Review

Stuart cogently distinguishes between powerful societies . . . and efficient societies, which run frugally but sacrifice wealth and power to do so. --Booklist

Anasazi America draws a fascinating dichotomy between modern pueblos and modern America, which has failed to learn history s lessons. --American Archaeology

From the Inside Flap

Describes the rise and 12th century demise of New Mexico's Chaco Anasazi--uncontrolled growth and separation into "haves" and "have nots" were their undoing. Modern industrial society has much to learn from this compelling saga of failure, adjustment, and redemption.
