"This book was written and illustrated for a general audience as a companion volume to Ancient Paquimé and the Casas Grandes World (University of Arizona Press, 2015), and features the same list of contributing authors. The chapters have been rewritten for lay readers interested in the Casas Grandes site and area. From the introduction: "Each section of this book summarizes recent research that expands our understanding and appreciation of Paquimé, its region, and its role in the prehistory of the SW/NW. A more detailed technical volume, Ancient Paquimé and the Casas Grandes World, is for those who want to read further. These two publications follow in the path-breaking organization of the eight-volume JCGE report, Casas Grandes: A Fallen Trading Center of the Gran Chichimeca. Like the first three volumes of the JCGE report, this book is an easily accessible summary. The last five volumes of the JCGE report provide more detailed documentation and tabular summaries of data, a tradition we emulate in Ancient Paquimé and the Casas Grandes World"--Provided by publisher.

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.
