Behavioral Archeology (Studies in Archeology)

 
9780126241501: Behavioral Archeology (Studies in Archeology)

This is a reprinted edition of one of the most influential books Schiffer wrote, originally for Academic Press. "One of the most important treatments of archaeological methodology. Although it will undoubtedly be a controversial book, even those who do not accept the Schifferian approach will find some imaginative, well-formulated methods that can be used to obtain information about the past" - Stephen Plog, American Antiquity. Must be distinguished from the collection of articles by Schiffer published by University of Utah Press called "Behavioural Archaeology".

Michael Brian Schiffer, University of Arizona , Tucson, Arizona.

Review:

From the Prologue to the Percheron Press Edition "Clearly many issues raised in Behavioral Archeology, as well as its principal ideas, retain considerable relevance for the practice of archaeology. Thus I present this reprinted edition of Behavioral Archeology, warts and all, in the hope that readers will enjoy engaging the ideas that played a pivotal role in establishing as fundamental the behavioral perspective in archaeology." From the reviews "[A]n important and original essay that tackles the nature and methods of archaeological inference in a fundamental way. [O]ne of the most noteworthy theoretical writings in archaeology in recent years, and, unlike most of the others, it is also delightfully readable." K. C. Chang in American Scientist "[Schiffer's] first grand treatise dealing with the interrelationships between laws, cultural and natural formation processes, and their applications for indirect observation of past cultural systems." Albert C. Goodyear in American Antiquity "[O]ne of the most important treatments of archaeological methodology. Although it will undoubtedly be a controversial book, even those who do not accept the Schifferian approach will find some imaginative, well-formulated methods that can be used to obtain information about the past." Stephen Plog in American Anthropologist
