Appeared in Choice on 2011-06-01:
Covering a range of issues from communication to identity in the broad field of indigenous archaeology, Phillips and Allen provide a global perspective on the dialogue between indigenous communities, archaeologists, and heritage managers. Authors in this edited volume focus on moving the conversation beyond familiar critiques and challenge readers to focus on the expansion of research and involvement by indigenous communities in the areas of archaeology and heritage management. The volume brings together case studies that primarily focus on New Zealand and Australia, with some contributions from North and South America and the Pacific. Chapters move from the indigenous critique of archaeology through issues of communication, involvement, indigenous identity, and the meaning of objects to the dilemmas posed by scientific study and economic development related to heritage management. At the heart of the book is the unique relationship of indigenous identity to archaeological heritage and the intriguing ways in which different scholars approach this relationship. For collections in cultural resource management, heritage management, indigenous perspectives in anthropology, archaeological theory, and public archaeology. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. K. F. Thompson Northern Arizona University

Bowker Data Service Summary
Offers a collection of essays that address issues regarding the relationship between Indigenous groups & archaeologists, including the challenges of dialogue, colonialism, the difficulties of working within legislative & institutional frameworks & more.
Main Description
The collected essays in this volume address contemporary issues regarding the relationship between Indigenous groups and archaeologists, including the challenges of dialogue, colonialism, the difficulties of working within legislative and institutional frameworks, and NAGPRA and similar legislation. The disciplines of archaeology and cultural heritage management are international in scope and many countries continue to experience the impact of colonialism. In response to these common experiences, both archaeology and indigenous political movements involve international networks through which information quickly moves around the globe. This volume reflects these dynamic dialectics between the past and the present and between the international and the local, demonstrating that archaeology is a historical science always linked to contemporary cultural concerns.
