About the Author

A. Martin Byers taught anthropology and humanities at Vanier College in Montreal for thirty years and was recently research associate in the Department of Anthropology at McGill University. He is author of Cahokia: A World Renewal Cult Heterarchy (University Press of Florida 2006) and The Ohio Hopewell Episode: Paradigm Lost and Paradigm Gained (University of Akron Press 2004).


This is an enormously rich and provocative book that I cannot hope to summarize in the brief space allotted for this review. I heartily recommend it to the attention of anyone interested in the Hopewell episode, of course, but also anyone grappling with the challenge of how we give social meaning to achaeological phenomena. * Cambridge Archaeological Journal *
