Debates in archaeology
附註 Includes bibliographical references and index
After neo-evolutionism, how does one talk about the pre-modern state? Over the past two decades archaeological research has shifted decisively from check-list identifications of the state as an evolutionary type to studies of how power and authority were constituted in specific polities. Developing Gramsci's concept of hegemony, this book provides an accessible discussion of general principles that serve to help us understand and organise these new directions in archaeological research. Throughout this book, conceptual issues are illustrated by means of case studies drawn from Madagascar, Mesopotamia, the Inca, the Maya and Greece
After (neo-)evolution(ism) -- Coercion and consent -- Hegemony in action : the kingdom of Imerina in central Madagascar -- Beyond politics : articulation and reproduction in Athens and the Inca Empire -- Spectacle and routine -- Routine lives and spectacular deaths : the royal tombs of Ur -- Conclusion : The hazardous necessity of comparison
