While this iscertainly a sustainable market for the series, this particularvolume presents an overview and depth that will also, and perhapsmore so, be a welcome addition to the libraries of postgraduate andresearch archaeologists ... Stark has assembled a valuable resourcemade all the more useful by not shying away from the scholarly andnational politics reflected in so much Asian Archaeology"
