Employing a broad and inclusive definition of historical archaeology for this survey of the field's theoretical debates and case literature, Hall (U. of Cape Town, South Africa) and Silliman (U. of Massachusetts, US) have chosen to shape the organizing framework of their collection around perspectives on the processes that have formed and shaped modernity. Opening chapters address "dimensions of practice," looking at such disciplinary questions as the environmental aspects of historical archaeology, the links between material culture and texts, and spatial aspects of social life. The next group of papers discusses interpretive perspectives and touch upon issues of gender, ideology, class, and the institution. Finally, surveys of the historical archaeology of Latin America, Africa, North America, the Pacific Islands, and Europe are presented. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
