Subjects: Archaeology

This volume brings together a diverse set of new studies--archaeological, ethnohistoric, and ethnographic--that focus on agricultural intensification and hydraulic systems around the world. Fifteen chapters--written by many of the world's leading experts--combine extensive regional overviews of agricultural histories with in-depth case studies. In this volume are chapters on agriculture in the Middle East, South Asia, Europe, Oceania, Mesoamerica, and South America. A wide range of theoretical perspectives and approaches are used to provide a framework for agricultural land-use and water management in a variety of cultural and historical contexts. This book covers the co-evolutionary relationships among sociopolitical structure, agriculture, land-use, and water control. Agricultural Strategies is an invaluable resource for those engaged in ongoing debates about the role of intensification and agriculture in the past and present.

Joyce Marcus is Robert L. Carneiro Distinguished Professor of Social Evolution, department of anthropology, and director and Curator of Latin American Archaeology, Museum of Anthropology, at the University of Michigan. Charles Stanish holds the Lloyd Cotsen Chair in Archaeology at the University of California, Los Angeles.
