Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A dozen papers from a symposium at the 1988 Society for American Archaeology, in Phoenix, explore the impact of the contact between Europeans and Native Americans, using a combination of archaeological, historical, and ethnographic evidence. They consider theoretical orientations, and encounters with villagers and chiefdoms in North America and with states in Mesoamerica. Not a dry record of findings, but a reconstruction of events and contexts that would interest historians and general readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
