"This is not the same old culture history but a respectablecompilation of recent fieldwork and analysis within a framework ofinnovative problem-oriented research. Joyce's introductory chapteris a synthetic tour de force." Journal of the RoyalAnthropological Institute

"With specially commissioned essays by leading scholars, this isan excellent up-to-date introduction to Mesoamerican archaeology."Oxbow Books

"In this volume archaeologists have, at last, a textbook onMesoamerica that combines recent data with current social thought.The chapters are beautifully written and provocative, giving deeperinsight into Mesoamerican cultural diversity without simplifying5000 years into a single story. Hendon and Joyce have chosencontributors who are not just specialists, but who are some of themost exciting thinkers of our generation." K. Anne Pyburn,Indiana University

"Mesoamerican Archaeology: Theory and Practice is anoutstanding book. It is exactly what we've needed in thefield for a very long time and should be used by everyone teachinga course in Mesoamerican archaeology. Hendon and Joyce have done anoutstanding job of integrating fresh essays by leading scholarsinto a text that is both theoretically informed and empirically upto date. The combination of theory and data make it anindispensable work." Michael Love, California State University,Northridge
