by David E. Stuart, Ph.D.
ANTHROPOLOGY / ARCHAEOLOGY / AMERICAN INDIANS
"A passionate and provocative book which argues that we have much to learn from the Chaco Anasazi and their successors. Every archaeologist, every student of anthropology, and anyone interested in the future of industrial society should read this stimulating essay, then read it again. Few books on the Southwest have such a general and urgent appeal."
---- Brian Fagan, Professor of Anthropology, University of California, Santa Barbara
"A must book for those intrigued by the prehistory of the Southwest."
A rich and thought-provoking survey of the rise and collapse of the Chaco phenomenon, based on extraordinary recent findings of archaeologists. Will delight the general reader and will be appreciated by specialists seeking a straightforward summary. I can recommend this splendid work without hesitation.
" ----Marc Simmons, historian
"Brilliant! Shows that archaeology not only provides a reading of the past but can furnish a blueprint for the future. I confess that I would like to see European archaeologists inspired by such a refreshing and forward-looking approach."
- Francois-René Picón, Social Sciences, Université René Descartes, Paris V, La Sorbonne
