5.0 de 5 estrelas Go-To book for a Basic Introduction to Archaeology 5 de novembro de 2015
Por Chique - Publicada na Amazon.com

An easy-to-read, comprehensive consideration of major traditions in archaeological theory. Johnson is succinct and explicit, incorporating major scholars, historical influences, issues, critiques, and responses to critiques in each thematic chapter. In the first chapter he does the discipline (indeed, all disciplines) a favor by emphasizing both the importance and inevitability of theory in scientific research in a comprehensible manner. He also incorporates trends from both the American and British archaeological disciplines, considering historical influences that led to the academic divisions, as well as how each has influenced the other. His consideration begins with early trends in cultural history and includes evolutionary, behavioral, processual, and post-processual trends. I especially appreciate his attention to the differences between post-processual and post-modern, and evolution and neo-evolutionary approaches. He includes the work of scholars such as Childe, Binford, Tilley, Marx, Sahlins, and Hodder, and each chapter's case study provides a clear example of the chapter's theme.

As a socio-cultural anthropology student, this is going to become my go-to reference book for basic information and reminders on archaeology and the scholars of each tradition. It would also make an excellent book for an introduction to theory for any student of archaeology, and would be accessible to general-level college classes. It was used in my upper-level graduate course as the groundwork for the dense academic articles assigned in tandem with the chapters (yes, we read the entire book). I would also recommend this book for any history enthusiast, dig volunteer, or curious person who desires a better understanding of how our viewpoints, social situations, and bias affect our research.

Thank you, Dr. Johnson, for this exceptional textbook! This no-longer confused anthropologist is grateful :)

4.0 de 5 estrelas Prolific Breadth, Approachable Depth 29 de agosto de 2012
Por Hayden Bassett - Publicada na Amazon.com

To any student of of archaeology, from 101 to the professional, Johnson's coverage of archaeological theory is both palatable and engaging. Written in a conversational tone, consider this publication a breath of fresh air after reading some of the more dry and dense literature of theoretical overviews. In addition to being a great first introduction to archaeological theory for undergraduates or advocationalists, it is nonetheless a fantastic read for post-grads and professionals simply looking to review and reflect.

Clearly written with a strong thread of commonality that discusses the transformation of archaeology and the theoretical underpinnings.
