    The assumption of simple core/periphery relationships is under challenge. Not only are scholars like Kristian Kristiansen focusing increasingly on the cultural changes which `peripheral' societies initiated in the `core', but also, as this book shows, the mechanisms of domination necessary to manage the periphery are not archaeological apparent in practice in `core' societies. The contributors to this volume reevaluate World Systems Theory in the light of work in the Old and New Worlds. Contents include: The changing structure of macroregional Mesoamerica: the Classic-Postclassic transition in the valley of Oaxaca (Gary Feinman); Negotiated peripherality in Iron Age Greece: accepting and resisting the East (Ian Morris); Production within and beyond Imperial boundaries: Goods, exchanges and power in Roman Europe (Peter Wells).

    Eight papers examine material from a variety of geographic locations. Concentrating on the relationships between craft production and social complexity, trade, settlement patters, and the manipulation of landscape, the chapters employ different types of analysis and examine the relationship between the mode of analysis and the technology employed. Contributors include anthropologists and archeologists from around the United States. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
