      BEHAVIORAL ARCHEOLOGY

      MICHAEL BRIAN SCHIFFER
      University of Arizona
      Tucson, Arizona

      With a New Prologue by the Author

      >From the Prologue to the Percheron Press Edition . . .

      "Clearly many issues raised in Behavioral Archeology, as well as its
      principal ideas, retain considerable relevance for the practice of
      archaeology.  Thus I present this reprinted edition of Behavioral
      Archeology, warts and all, in the hope that readers will enjoy engaging the
      ideas that played a pivotal role in establishing as fundamental the
      behavioral perspective in archaeology."

      >From the reviews . . .

      "[A]n important and original essay that tackles the nature and methods of
      archaeological inference in a fundamental way.  [O]ne of the most
      noteworthy theoretical writings in archaeology in recent years, and, unlike
      most of the others, it is also delightfully readable."
                                              K.C. Chang in American Scientist

      "[Schiffer's] first grand treatise dealing with the interrelationships
      between laws, cultural and natural formation processes, and their
      applications for indirect observation of past cultural systems."
                                              Albert C. Goodyear in American
      Antiquity

      "[O]ne of the most important treatments of archaeological methodology.
      Although it will undoubtedly be a controversial book, even those who do not
      accept the Schifferian approach will find some imaginative, well-formulated
      methods that can be used to obtain information about the past."
                                              Stephen Plog in American Anthropologist
