"Archaeology has changed dramatically since the early 1980s. Itis more inclusive, more holistic, and more relevant to the modernworld. These changes are the product of the interplay of internaldebates about epistemology and external discussions regardingsocial and political factors in the context of knowledgeproduction. This new edition interrogates standard assumptionsunderlying such oppositions as culture and agency, matter andmateriality, individual and society, colonial power and indigenousresistance, and, in the process, offers exciting new waysforward."
