Contra la tiranía tipológica en arqueología: Una visión desde Suramérica

edited by Cristóbal Gnecco and Carl Henrik Langebaek

This collection of papers, by scholars from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Venezuela, showcases current theoretical thinking in archaeology in South America. While recognizing the fundamental descriptive utility of typologies, the authors seek to escape the straightjacket to which they can confine our thinking and our analyses. Topics covered include social inequality, exchange, complex social organization, the relation of ethonographic and ethnohistoric sources to archaeological evidence, and more. In Spanish.
