Pressestimmen'Nationalism, Politics and the Practice of Archaeology clearly demonstrates that the past constitutes a symplib resource with great potential for present-day politics. This makes the theme crucial and relevant not only for archaeology but also for history and anthropology more generally.' Ethnos 'Nationalism, Politics, and the Practice of Archeology clearly demonstrate that the past constitues a symbolic resource with great potential for present-day politics. This makes the theme crucial and relevant not only for archaeology but also for history and anthropology more generally.' Mats Burstrom, Ethnos 'I recommend this book to all archaeologists both for its coverage of the history of archaeology and most importantly for what it has to say about modern issues in the practise of archaeology.'
