A Marxist Archaeology
A rich intellectual tradition that offers archaeologists a way around many seemingly irresolvable theoretical oppositions, Marxism deserves a place in the philosophical and substantive debates in archaeology. This book applies Marxist theory to archaeology, explores long-term historical change and cultural evolution, and advocates a dialectical and historical approach to the study of the past. Originally published by Academic Press in 1992, this edition features a new prologue by the author.
From the Prologue to the Percheron Press Edition . . .
'The unique contribution that Marxism can make to archaeology comes from the integration of [its three parts] to gain knowledge of, critique, and take action in the world. . . . [T]his integration is an ongoing, dynamic, and never-ending process. My starting point for this process is to be found in A Marxist Archaeology and I hope that other archaeologists will find my efforts helpful as they begin their journey.'
