This stimulating collection demonstrates the inadequacy of a history that is always written by the "winners." Drawing on original studies from Africa, North America, Australia and the Pacific in order to make its points, "The Politics of the Past" emphasizes that archaeology has a crucial role to play in promoting a more balanced, eclectic approach to the past.

This illuminating book aims to enrich historical and archaeological inquiry and interpretation,
