Making Alternative HistoriesSAR Press PublicationMaking Alternative Histories: The Practice of Archaeology and History in Non-Western SettingsAfter working in Third World contexts for more than a century, many archaeologists from the West have yet to hear and understand the voices of their colleagues in non-Western cultural settings. In Making Alternative Histories, eleven scholars from Africa, India, Latin America, North America, and Europe debate and discuss how to respond to the erasures of local histories by colonialism, neocolonial influences, and the practice of archaeology and history as we know them today in North America and much of the Western world.
Historical EcologySAR Press PublicationHistorical Ecology: Cultural Knowledge and Changing LandscapesEnvironmental change is one of the most pressing problems facing the world community. In this volume, the authors take a critical step toward establishing a new environmental science by deconstructing the traditional culture/nature dichotomy and placing human/environmental interaction at the center of any new attempts to deal with global environmental change.
