Review:

?This is not just a thought-provoking up-to-date account of archaeological theory; it is also a helpful and engaging introduction for all those interested in the full array of archaeological perspectives in use today.? ?Ian Hodder, Stanford University "With disarming wit and inspiring clarity, Matthew Johnson's Archaeological Theory provides an engaging history of archaeological thinking that illuminates the discipline's past and charts new pathways for its future." ?Adam Smith, University of Chicago "This is the key text for understanding archaeological theory. Matthew Johnson explains concepts and terms clearly and succinctly and makes complex theoretical ideas easily accessible." ?Claire Smith, Flinders University "In its coverage even better than the first edition, and as refreshingly written. An excellent guide through the changing landscape of archaeological theory. A 'must read'!" ?Graeme Barker, University of Cambridge

From the Back Cover:

Archaeological Theory, 2nd Edition is the most current and comprehensive introduction to the field available. Thoroughly revised and updated, this engaging text offers students an ideal entry point to the major concepts and ongoing debates in archaeological research.

Exploring the many ways of approaching the human past, from positivism to post-modernism, Johnson reveals the historical origins of different schools of thought and sets theories against the practical problems they are intended to solve, as well as against wider developments in other disciplines.

A lucid and concise guide to the most updated thinking and terminology in the field, Archaeological Theory, 2nd Edition remains an invaluable resource for students and archaeologists of all stripes.
