During the 1960s, scholars constructed a model of cultural evolution in which men cooperated in the hunting of big game while women gathered plant food, "immobilized" by pregnancy and childcare. The essays in Women in Prehistory challenge this model as they reconsider women's social and economic roles.

This essential handbook explores the relationship between the postcolonial critique and the field of archaeology, a discipline that developed historically in conjunction with European colonialism and imperialism. In aiding the movement to decolonize the profession, the contributors to this volume—themselves from six continents and many representing indigenous and minority communities and disadvantaged countries—suggest strategies to strip archaeological theory and practice of its colonial heritage and create a discipline sensitive to its inherent inequalities. Summary articles review the emergence of the discipline of archaeology in conjunction with colonialism, critique the colonial legacy evident in continuing archaeological practice around the world, identify current trends, and chart future directions in postcolonial archaeological research. Contributors provide a synthesis of research, thought, and practice on their topic. The articles embrace multiple voices and case study approaches, and have consciously aimed to recognize the utility of comparative work and interdisciplinary approaches to understanding the past. This is a benchmark volume for the study of the contemporary politics, practice, and ethics of archaeology. Sponsored by the World Archaeological Congress

Early nineteenth century America saw the first wave of post-Independence immigration. Germans, Irish, Englishmen, Scandinavians, and even Chinese on the west coast began to arrive in significant numbers, profoundly impacting national developments like westward expansion, urban growth, industrialization, city and national politics, and the Civil War. This volume explores the early immigrants' experience, detailing where they came from, what their journey to America was like, where they entered their new nation, and where they eventually settled. Life in immigrant communities is examined, particularly those areas of life unsettled by the clash of cultures and adjustment to a new society. Immigrant contributions to American society are also highlighted, as are the battles fought to gain wider acceptance by mainstream culture. Engaging narrative chapters explore the experience from the viewpoint of the individua, the catalysts for leaving one's homeland, new immigrant settlements and the differences among them, social, religious, and familial structures within the immigrant communities, and the effects of the Civil War and the beginning of the new immigrant wave of the 1870s. Images and a selected bibliography supplement this thorough reference source, making it ideal for students of American history and culture.

Die Könige der III. Dynastie von Ur (2112-2004 v. Chr.) waren stets mit mehreren Frauen gleichzeitig verheiratet, von denen jedoch nur eine Frau die Position einer Königin einnahm. Unter der großen Zahl von Wirtschaftsdokumenten dieser Zeit, die einen detaillierten Einblick in die staatliche Wirtschaft und Verwaltung geben, beziehen sich über 1000 Texte auf Transaktionen, die den Tätigkeitsfeldern der königlichen Gemahlinnen zugeordnet werden können. Alle Frauen der Herrscher von Ur waren in der Wirtschaft und Verwaltung tätig, sie waren zu verschiedenen Anlässen am Kult beteiligt und in die komplexen Strukturen des höfischen Lebens eingebunden. In dieser Arbeit wird unter anderem den Fragen nachgegangen, in welchen Funktionen und bei welchen Tätigkeiten sich die königlichen Frauen in den Quellen nachweisen lassen und in welcher Weise sich das Aufgabenspektrum einer Königin von Ur von jenem einer Nebenfrau unterschied. Vergleichend zur Situation der königlichen Frauen der Ur III-Zeit werden die Frauen der Herrscherhäuser im frühdynastischen Ebla und in der Akkadezeit in vier Exkursen betrachtet.
