From the reviews . . .

“Readers will find the case-studies especially useful for their excellent and well-illustrated reviews of previous research, along with the presentation of new data and analyses. Also important are issues cross-cutting the individual case-studies.”
Deborah L. Nichols in Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

“[A]n important and successful book. . . . [I]t provides a fine overview of what settlement pattern archaeology has contributed to anthropology in the Americas.”
Jeffrey R. Parsons in American Antiquity

“The studies in this volume . . . demonstrate the utility of the [settlement pattern] approach and how it has expanded over the last half-century. . . . [I]ncludes state-of-the-art work.”
Robert Santley in Canadian Journal of Anthropological Research

“This set of papers is strong and represents some of the success stories in site-organized settlement pattern work. . . . [A] credit to the grand impact of the family of settlement archaeology approaches in our discipline.”
Barbara L. Stark in American Anthropologist
