?Ian Hodder, Stanford University
"With disarming wit and inspiring clarity, Matthew Johnson's Archaeological Theory provides an engaging history of archaeological thinking that illuminates the discipline's past and charts new pathways for its future."
?Adam Smith, University of Chicago

?Graeme Barker, University of Cambridge
From the Back Cover
Exploring the many ways of approaching the human past, from positivism to post-modernism, Johnson reveals the historical origins of different schools of thought and sets theories against the practical problems they are intended to solve, as well as against wider developments in other disciplines.
A lucid and concise guide to the most updated thinking and terminology in the field, Archaeological Theory, 2nd Edition remains an invaluable resource for students and archaeologists of all stripes.
