Scarborough (anthropology, U. of Cincinnati) introduces six case studies illustrating the relevance of studying archeological sites in diverse regions for insights into how cultures organize in relation to their control of water resources. Considering such approaches as Wittfogel's "hydraulic societies" theory (1957), he offers a networked as vs. hierarchical model to examine human-engineered landscapes. Color photos feature terraced rice paddies, drainage canals, and gardens from Southeast Asia to the Mayan lowlands. This is a School of American Research resident scholar book.
