--Wendy Ashmore, University of California, Riverside
"It is recommended reading for any serious student of Mesoamerican prehistory, and will likely shape the theoretical orientation of much Oaxacan archaeology to come." (Journal of the Royal Astronomical Institute, 2011) "A great read! Joyce focuses a fine critical eye on understandingchanging relationships among Mixtec, Zapotec, and Chatino peoplesacross centuries of profound transformation."
--Marcus Winter, Centro INAH Oaxaca
"In this masterful synthesis of Oaxaca archaeology, Arthur Joycecovers the entire prehispanic sequence from the Archaic through thePostclassic, weaving together traditional knowledge with data fromthe most recent discoveries in the three best-documented regions ofOaxaca--the Valley of Oaxaca, the Mixteca, and theCoast."
--Javier Urcid, Brandeis University
"Excellent textbook to highlight major differences in thetheoretical tenets of processual and post-processual archaeologieswhile giving voice to the cultural legacy of Zapotec, Chatino andMixtec speaking peoples."
