Abstract

Christensen urges archaeologists to enter "the fray of current sociopolitical debates" (p. 20) but to choose associations and involvements with care. [...]she implores us to view activist sites, such as Gage's, as a means to reassess the past and dismantle stereotypes. [...]it is evident that the strengths of this volume lie in delivering something that has not, to my knowledge, been provided yet: a self-help book for archaeologists who aspire to reconceptualize, reformulate, and initiate their roles within the larger sociopolitical arena.
