Review quote

...has important theoretical implications forarchaeological studies of empires, worldwide. Terence N. D'Altroy, Christine A. Hastorf, and their associates have helped move the Andescloser to the front lines of theory building in archaeology. Everychapter is rife with implications for the study of similar societiesanywhere in the world, and each is a gem unto itself. Rarely have thearchaeologically visible effects of imperial domination been soclearly documented. D'Altroy, Hastorf, and their associates mosteffectively have raised the bar for future studies ofimperial-provincial relations. This book should reside in the libraryof every archaeologist with an interest in empires.'Journal of Anthropological Research, 58 (2002)show more
