9780521577878: Ancient Oaxaca (Case Studies in Early Societies)

Just after 500 B.C., one of the earliest states in the New World developed in the Valley of Oaxaca, in present-day Mexico. The newly created political institution brought in its wake a profound transformation of society and technology. This book investigates the rich archaeological record of the valley in an attempt to throw light on the causes and consequences of these changes.

Nicholas--University of Wisconsin, Madison

Review:

'Blanton, Gary Feinman, Kowalewski and Linda Niholas have been major contributors to our current understanding of ancient Oaxaca. This book is a welcome summary of their data and interpretations related to what may be the most complex and the most interesting period of change in Oaxaca and Mesoamerica and in the formation of archaicstates. Throughout the book, and especially in the last section, the authors point to gaps in our knowledge. This kind of problem recognition is important and reflects what the book does best -help us think about the origins of Monte Alban and political complexity.' American Anthropologist

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This book investigates the emergence of social complexity and state formation in a New World region. Around 500 BC, the Valley of Oaxaca, in present-day Mexico, was the site of one of the earliest Native American states, when a new regional capital was established at Monte Alban. Today one of Mexico s most famous and spectacular archaeological sites, Monte Alban signalled an important series of changes in regional political structure in the direction of greater political complexity and integration within a larger domain. The four authors of this introductory text have over the years produced much of the most important primary information we have about developing complex societies in this region. Drawing on the abundance of excavated remains and a survey of regional archaeological settlement patterns, they provide a succinct account of the causes and consequences of political change in the region.
