'This book - the outcome of an advanced seminar held in 1987 at the School of American Research in Santa Fe, New Mexico - offers the first major synthesis of new data and current thinking about the regional systems of the Chacoans and the Hohokam.
For each region, the authors examine settlement patterns, the subsistence economy, exchange of goods, and social organisation - all with an emphasis on explaining and comparing the independent origins, growth, maintenance, and decline of these complex social systems.  The result is a uniquely comprehensive set of case studies integrated in one volume for the first time.'
