Comparative Perspectives on the Archaeology of Coastal South America

Perspectivas Comparativas sobre la Arqueología de la Costa Sudamericana

edited by / editado por Robyn E. Cutright, Enrique López-Hurtado, and Alexander J. Martín

Thirteen papers by archaeologists from North and South America on the archaeology of coastal Ecuador, Peru, and Chile. The authors have all emphasized comparative approaches to prehispanic societies along the Pacific coast. They give preference neither to high theory nor to case-specific empirical details, but rather attempt to answer theoretically important research questions with appropriate methodologies and empirical datasets--ones that are amenable to a broad comparative view. Complete text in English and Spanish.
