Reviews

"This is a marvelous book, rich in content and interpretative sophistication. Any archaeologist that considers working in South America should read this book. And anyone interested in the history of ideas and the role of archaeological knowledge in our daily lives will find this a fascinating read." -from the foreword by Charles Stanish, Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, UCLA "There have been a number of histories of Peruvian archaeology, but most focus on the development of cultural sequences, major discoveries, and the contributions of archaeologists to the rise and spread of Central Andean civilizations. Tantalean, however, places the history of Peruvian archaeology within the context not only of changing Peruvian governmental systems, but of Peruvian archaeological politics and theoretical positions, the establishment of archaeology in museums and universities, and the role of foreign influence in the development of Peruvian archaeology. ... This volume is a must for those interested in the history of archaeology in the Americas, for it demonstrates the complexity of the development of professional archaeology in Peru from its beginnings in the 19th century to today." - J. B. Richardson, University of Pittsburgh
