Focusing on decisions--engineering economy as a decision tool not an adjunct to accounting--this textbook is completely integrated into the easy-computing era and treats monetary inflation routinely. Contains detailed coverage of equipment replacement, after-tax analysis, risk, public economy, benefit/cost ratios and cost effectiveness. Chapter 10 features unique case-study-type design exercises which integrate methods and practice. Includes over 800 original problems with comprehensive solutions and discussion, approximately 300 chapter examples, 450 end-of-chapter exercises, 100 quiz questions plus several hundred charts, graphs and tables.

Industry Reviews

“This is an up-to-date and theoretically broad-ranging comparative treatment of desert hunter-gatherer archaeology and ethnology that introduces a new, fresh generation of scholars and issues. Bravo!” Richard Gould, Brown University

“Desert Peoples shows how important the world's arid habitats have always been during the course of human evolution. The geographical scope of the contributions is breathtaking, their comparative approach to dynamics and interactions compelling. I congratulate the editors for making the desert bloom for human prehistory.” Clive Gamble, Royal Holloway, University of London

“A superb synthesis . The authors use the opportunity to set out several probing questions that will underpin future research on how societies adapt to challenging environments.” John Dodson, Brunel University and University of Western Australia

"Competent, well-written summaries of local culture history...several of the essays merit serious attention from readers of this journal." Archaeology in Oceania

"In this era of regional and topical specialisation, which often leads to perochialism, the editors of this book can take great satisfaction in having provided a venue for looking at the big picture."
Australian Archaeology

"Desert Peoples: Archaeological Perspectives is an essential source for those interested in hunting-gathering lifeways." Laurie Milne, Canadian Journal of Archaeology
