Description - The Land of Prehistory by Alice Beck Kehoe
This volume offers a history of the discipline of archaeology in America. The book reveals the 19th-century century bourgeois value system behind the field, its goals and its current condition. The author argues that American archaeology, from the days of Thomas Jefferson to the present, has been shaped by an ethic of Manifest Destiny.
