Review quote

'The book is a model in methodology and organization, and it is an extremely important contribution to the accessible archaeological data on sites in China. Shelach should be congratulated for successfully conducting archaeological research as a foreigner in China...' Antiquity, 74:285 (2000) 'Chinese specialists naturally welcome this work, which supplies important comparative material for students of complex societies. ...this book is a significant contribution to the archaeological study of complex societies in general, and it succeeds in stimulating a range of important questions in the study of Chinese complex societies in particular.' Journal of Anthropological Research, 57 (2001)
