9780971242739: Method and Theory in Historical Archeology (Foundations of Archaeology)

A welcome reprint of Stanley South's classic book on historical archaeology, originally written for a North American audience but as relevant to scholars working on industrial and historical archaeology in the Old World. One of the two or three most influential books in historical archaeology. The scientific approach outlined and practiced throughout this book still dominates the discipline - Mark P Leone, University of Maryland.

Stanley South, University of South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina

Review:

From the Foreword to the Percheron Press Edition "Stanley South's productivity and the arguments presented in this book are a solid foundation on which to build a vital and growing historical archaeology." Lewis R. Binford, Southern Methodist University Praise from readers "[O]ne of the two or three most influential books in historical archaeology. The scientific approach outlined and practiced throughout the book still dominates historical archaeology." Mark P. Leone, University of Maryland "[This] book completely revolutionized the way Americanists viewed historical archaeology. Much of the way that today's generation of scholars approaches the historical record grows out of [this] work." Michael J. O'Brien, University of Missouri "[T]he most important piece of theoretical work ever written in historical archaeology. [I]t forced historical archaeology to mature." Charles E. Orser, Jr., Illinois State University "The publication of Method and Theory in Historical Archeology was the high point for the impact of the 'New Archaeology' and processual studies on historical archaeology." Robert L. Schuyler, University of Pennsylvania
