Summary
  • "A Pueblo Social History explores the intersection of archaeology, ethnohistory, and ethnology. Ware argues that all of the key Pueblo social, ceremonial, and political institutions--and their relative importance across the Pueblo world--can only be explained in terms of indigenous social history stretching back nearly two millennia. He shows that the principal community organizations of the Pueblos emerged for the first time nearly thirteen hundred years ago, and that the interaction of these organizations would forge most of the unique social practices and institutions described in the historical Pueblo ethnographies." -- Publisher's website
  • "A Pueblo Social History is a brilliant tour de force about the archaeology and ethnography of the American Southwest. This thoroughly accessible work is a major contribution to the field with its penetrating analysis of the multifaceted historical connections between the Ancestral Pueblos and the contemporary Eastern and Western Pueblos. John Ware raises a number of significant theoretical and methodological issues about the study of past communities that reach well beyond the borders of the Southwest. This provocative book is a must read for anyone interested in ancient kinship-based organizations, ritual sodalities, community-level architecture, ethnographies as historical destinations, and cutting-edge, holistic approaches to anthropology." -- Kent G. Lightfoot, University of California, Berkeley
