This volume provides a theoretical basis for understanding the specific effects of totalitarian dictatorship upon the practice of archaeology, both during and after the dictator's reign. The nine essays explore experiences from every corner of the Mediterranean. With its wide-range of case-studies and strong theoretical orientation, this volume is a major advance in the study of the history and politics of archaeology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
From the reviews:

..."thought-provoking collection." (N. James and Stephanie Wynne-Jones, Antiquity)

"In a world which has recently witnessed the 60th anniversary of the death of Hitler and the aftermath of the overthrow of Saddam Husseins regime, a book entitled Archaeology Under Dictatorship seems timely and apt. the dictatorships of the Mediterranean region are the primary focus of this publication. The volume adds considerably to the growing pool of scholarship that composes the sub-field of politics of the past. This book represents a well-presented work which awaits avid mining by scholars ." (Britt Baillie, Archaeological Review from Cambridge, Vol. 21 (1), 2006)
