Described by Lewis Binford in his new foreword as a 'solid foundation on which to build a vital and growing historical archaeology,' Stanley South's famous book on historical archaeology includes a new introduction by the author that discusses how the book came to be written and the evolution of the field. Widely regarded as one of the most influential books in historical archaeology, the book was originally published by Academic Press in 1977.



From the Foreword to the Percheron Press Edition . . .

'Stanley South's productivity and the arguments presented in this book are a solid foundation on which to build a vital and growing historical archaeology.'

Lewis R. Binford, Southern Methodist University

Leone, University of Maryland) '[This] book completely revolutionized the way Americanists viewed historical archaeology. Much of the way that today's generation of scholars approaches the historical record grows out of [this] work.' (Michael J. O'Brien, University of Missouri) '[T]he most important piece of theoretical work ever written in historical archaeology. [I]t forced historical archaeology to mature.' (Charles E. Orser, Jr., Illinois State University) 'The publication of Method and Theory in Historical Archeology was the high point for the impact of the `New Archaeology' and processual studies on historical archaeology.' (Robert L. Schuyler, University of Pennsylvania)
