Archaeology and Capitalism : From Ethics to Politics

Abstract

This work Focuses on the inherent political nature of archeology and its impact on the practice of the discipline. This title points to the discipline's history of advancing imperialist, colonialist, and racist objectives, and insists that archeology must rethink its muted professional stance and become more overtly active agents of change.
