[a] fine volume...Coverage of current and emergent topics is well conceived...Essential. -- S.R. Martin, Michigan Technological Un iversity * CHOICE *
This volume provides a valuable guidebook for both the uninitiated and veteran....an engaging read that forced me to confront some of my own ethical positions. It would be a valuable read for the professional and student alike. -- Jason D. Gillespie, Department of Anthropology, University of Alberta * Canadian Journal of Archaeology, Vol.28, 2004, Issue 1 *
This volume is earnestly recommended because it significantly expands and deepens our understanding of archaeological ethics, even as it challenges professionals and students alike to contemplate the conduct and core values of the discipline. -- Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh * Indigenous Nations Studies Journal *
Now that ethics have assumed a central role in archaeology, students, teachers, and practicing archaeologists, as well as those with an interest in and concern for the past, will find this book to be a valuable resource. * Journal of Field Archaeology *
This volumn is a closely edited, well-planned overview of archaeological ethics, written under the auspices of the Society for American Archaeology but including contributions from far beyond the USA. * Oxbow Book News, Vol. 57, Autumn 2003 *
