Archaeologists are increasingly recognizing the early Pueblo period as a major social and demographic transition in Southwest history. This book is the first comprehensive summary of population growth and migration, the materialization of early villages, cultural diversity, relations of social power, and the emergence of early great houses during the Pueblo period. It also explores the dynamics of social identity, power, and gender during this time of rapid change. With contributions by 25 of the leading archaeologists working in the Southwest, this important volume offers new insights about the origins of villages and examines how the study of the early Pueblo period contributes to an anthropological understanding of Southwest history and early farming societies throughout the world.--

The American Southwest is one of the most important archaeological regions in the world, with many of the best-studied examples of hunter-gatherer and village-based societies. Research has been carried out in the region for well over a century, and during this time the Southwest has repeatedly stood at the forefront of the development of new archaeological methods and theories. Moreover, research in the Southwest has long been a key site of collaboration between archaeologists, ethnographers, historians, linguists, biological anthropologists, and indigenous intellectuals. This volume marks the most ambitious effort to take stock of the empirical evidence, theoretical orientations, and historical reconstructions of the American Southwest. Over seventy top scholars have joined forces to produce an unparalleled survey of state of archaeological knowledge in the region. Themed chapters on particular methods and theories are accompanied by comprehensive overviews of the culture histories of particular archaeological sequences, from the initial Paleoindian occupation, to the rise of a major ritual center in Chaco Canyon, to the onset of the Spanish and American imperial projects. The result is an essential volume for any researcher working in the region as well as any archaeologist looking to take the pulse of contemporary trends in this key research tradition.

Vernacular Architecture in the Pre-Columbian Americas reveals the dynamism of the ancient past, where social relations and long-term history were created posthole by posthole, brick by brick. This collection shifts attention away from the elite and monumental architectural traditions of the region to instead investigate the creativity, subtlety and variability of common architecture and the people who built and dwelled in them. At the heart of this study of vernacular architecture is an emphasis on ordinary people and their built environments, and how these everyday spaces were pivotal in the making and meaning of social and cultural dynamics. Providing a deeper and more nuanced temporal perspective of common buildings in the Americas, the editors have deftly framed a study that highlights sociocultural diversity while at the same time facilitating broader comparative conversations around the theme of vernacular architecture. With diverse case studies covering a broad range of periods and regions, Vernacular Architecture in the Pre-Columbian Americas is an important addition to the growing body of scholarship on the indigenous architecture of the Americas and is a key contribution to our archaeological understandings of past built environments.

The book "Programming Interactivity" describes the next stage in the evolution of interaction design. In addition to user experience, it regards the complete user economy with an emphasis on the social and entrepreneurial aspect. Most notably, instead of low- and hi-fidelity interactive prototypes, it encourages the lean development of interactive minimum viable products (MVP). Finally, besides user interaction with a particular device, the book advocates a focus on interaction with an ecosystem of users, devices, and services. The book has been carefully edited in order to avoid computer jargon and technological fads, so, despite the title ("programming"), you will not find a single line of computer code in the text, which is also complemented with beautiful interlude images from timely interactive systems. Moreover, the book has been deliberately produced to be coherent (average reading time should be less than 5h) and all extra material appears in a complementary web site: http: //www.pibook.gr
