Archaeology of Asia (Blackwell Studies in Global Archaeology) by Miriam T. Stark

Review
"Miriam Stark has performed a monumental service to global archaeology by selecting the most important cross-cultural themes in Asian archaeology and many of the most innovative writers to discuss them." Gina L. Barnes, University of Durham "Offering remarkable coverage of the world's largest continent, Stark has created an outstanding book that should be required reading for any archaeologist or historian interested in Asia." John Olsen, University of Arizona "This volume is the seventh in the series Blackwell Studies in Global Archaeology, a series intended to cover the central areas of undergraduate archaeological teaching. While this is certainly a sustainable market for the series, this particular volume presents an overview and depth that will also, and perhaps more so, be a welcome addition to the libraries of postgraduate and research archaeologists ... Stark has assembled a valuable resource made all the more useful by not shying away from the scholarly and national politics reflected in so much Asian Archaeology" Australian Archaeology
