"The practices and interpretations of archaeology are political and this is nowhere more relevant today than in the Middle East. This remarkable collection investigates multiple aspects of this issue. Every student of the discipline of archaeology should read this book." Marc van de Mieroop, Columbia University
"Drawing on their own impressive backgrounds, Pollock and Bernbeck have assembled a diverse group of experts to explore significant issues in Middle Eastern archaeology. Avoiding conventional and outdated arguments, this volume is an important addition to the provocation Blackwell Studies in Global Archaeology series." Sandra Scham, Editor, Near Eastern Archaeology
"In recognizing and exploring the important relationship between Middle Eastern archaeology and politics, Pollock and Bernbeck, with a notable group of contributors, open new roads of scholarship and understanding." Hans Nissen, The Free University of Berlin
From the Back Cover
Archaeology is a social practice that is thoroughly embedded in the contemporary world. This is nowhere clearer than in the Middle East, a region that is today an epicenter of political and economic tensions and ongoing conflicts. Archaeologies of the Middle East: Critical Perspectives provides an innovative introduction to the archaeology of this fascinating region, spanning 100,000 years from the Paleolithic to Hellenistic times, and a window on both its past and present.
Archaeologies of the Middle East explores the connections between modern–day politics and the social context of archaeological practice and underutilized approaches to archaeological interpretation, such as: examining the ways in which scholars write about the past, the portrayal of archaeology in the news media, and the impacts of and on archaeology in volatile political situations. Written by some of the top archaeologists of the Middle East, this volume integrates scholars from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of interests and intellectual approaches to their research. Archaeologies of the Middle East is carefully designed for student use and focuses on key themes and time periods rather than offering a static overview of the history of the region.See all Product description
