9780306456756: Mississippian Political Economy (Interdisciplinary Contributions to Archaeology)

An empirical discussion on the period. Muller brings the debate back to material evidence, preferring to avoid current tensions between the various interpretations of these societies. Much emphasis is placed on modes of production, distribution and consumption. This is a meaty study, which strives to broaden the horizons of Mississippian study.

Review:

`The clarity with which Muller develops his interpretation is a model of responsible argument...;every researcher working on Mississippian will need to take Mullers book into account...The book is an exemplar of materialistic reasoning in archaeology.'
Choice (January 1998)
`A masterful synthesis concerning the rise of Mississippian politics in Southeastern United States.'
Society for American Archaeology
`Mississippian Political Economy is a must read if you are interested in the Mississippian societies and their historic descendants. No matter what your theoretical orientation, there is much of value in this book for you. Read it, and think about what Muller has to say. Your own work will be the better for it.'
Illinois Archaeology, 11:1-2 (1999)
`For anyone interested in Mississippian archaeology, there is a great deal of value in the data presented and analytical methods used... crucially important to archaeologists interested in the millennium before European contact.'
The Review of Archaeology, 23:2

Book Description Springer Science+Business Media, United States, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1997 ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book is written from a particular theoretical and practical postnon. The first chapter outlines some of these issues, but a few issues requireemphasis. The first is what is meant by political economy. The concept of political econ- omy used here derives from common economic and social science usage. Sometimes, however, a few individuals seem to consider political economy to consist only of power relationships, especially in regard to distribution and consumption, often excluding or ignoring social reproduction or production. Although power and its uses are important issues, this is a very incomplete view of political economy from my perspective, one that ignores arguably eentral issues. Another issue is that of historieal eomparisons. Some of the ehapters that follow have mueh historieal data. The historical eomparisons are not the point of this volume, however. Testing of historieal models is important, but the reader should not be distraeted by them. I have long preaehed against misuse of historieal analogy. I do argue that the historie and prehistorie Southeastem societies have been misunderstood so as to make an artifieial gap between them, but this is a seeondary issue. In any ease, the thesis of similarity is being tested against empirieal evidenee. The historieal data are absolutely not being used to interpret the prehistorie data.
