John Kantner traces the evolution of Pueblo society in the American Southwest from the emergence of the Chaco and Mimbres in the AD 1000s through the early decades of contact with the Spanish in the sixteenth century. Based on a diverse range of archaeological data, historical accounts, oral history and ethnographic records, this introduction for students of the Pueblo Southwest is vital reading for any archaeologist concerned with the origins of early civilizations.

"It makes the very complex and abundant archaeological record of thsi culture area accessible. It successfully melds processualist approaches to data collection adn analysis with a contingent view of cultural change. It shows how competing hypotheses move interpretation foward. Perhaps most importantly, it is a case study of region that does not have a clear unilineal trajectory from band to state and it forces us to think about how human societies organize themselves in the absence of materially visible hierarchies." Canadian Journal of Archaeology Jonathan Driver, Simon Fraser University
