Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'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
