". . . one of the best things I have read in the history of archaeology for a long time. It demonstrates a level of disciplinary maturity in American archaeology where painful memories can be re-experienced and wrongs (on both sides) can be acknowledged."
--Archaeology Bulletin
"This is a fascinating book about a complex person...Taylor is claimed by the contributors to this new book as ancestor to both processual and postprocessual archaeologies...It thus remains possible to read him in different ways, as is well brought out by the diverse contributions to this volume, which is the first to provide a thorough and informed account that contextualizes Taylor's work and habilitates him within later and contemporary currents in archaeology...Throughout Prophet, Pariah, and Pioneer and especially at the end, the twists and turns, the refractions never stop...The editors are to be congratulated for not trying to tidy him up..."
--Ian Hodder, Current Anthropology
"This book is the fullest account of Walter Taylor yet in print, and doubtless it will remain so for many years. . . the focus of the volume on earlier theoretical history encourages us to more fully explore where we have been, where we are now, and where we may be going."
--American Antiquity
