The creation of inequality : how our prehistoric ancestors set the stage for monarchy, slavery, and empire by Kent V Flannery ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Overview: Our early ancestors lived in small groups and worked actively to preserve social equality. As they created larger societies, however, inequality rose, and by 2500 BCE truly egalitarian societies were on the wane. In The Creation of Inequality, Kent Flannery and Joyce Marcus demonstrate that this development was not simply the result of population increase, food surplus, or the accumulation of valuables. Instead, inequality resulted from conscious manipulation of the unique social logic that lies at the core of every human group. A few societies allowed talented and ambitious individuals to rise in prestige while still preventing them from becoming a hereditary elite. But many others made high rank hereditary, by manipulating debts, genealogies, and sacred lore. At certain moments in history, intense competition among leaders of high rank gave rise to despotic kingdoms and empires in the Near East, Egypt, Africa, Mexico, Peru, and the Pacific. Drawing on their vast knowledge of both living and prehistoric social groups, Flannery and Marcus describe the changes in logic that create larger and more hierarchical societies, and they argue persuasively that many kinds of inequality can be overcome by reversing these changes, rather than by violence
The Early Mesoamerican Village UPDATED EDITION by Kent V Flannery ( )
2 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the classic works of archaeology, The Early Mesoamerican Village was among the first studies to fully embrace the processual movement of the 1970s. Dancing around an ongoing dialogue on methods and goals between the Real Mesoamerican Archaeologist, the Great Synthesizer, and the Skeptical Graduate Student, it is both a seminal tract on scientific method in archaeology and a series of studies on formative Mesoamerica. It critically evaluates techniques for excavation, sampling of sites and regions, and stylistic analysis, as well as such theoretical factors of explanation as population

This collection of 12 documents, all in English, deal with the Early and Middle Formative periods in Mexico. Grove attempts to re-evaluate the Olmec horizons of the Formative period in Mesoamerica, which were believed to represent Olmec superiority and cultural diffusion throughout the region, concluding instead that the archaeological record may indicate a long-term, on-going and gradual social evolution across much of Mesoamerica. Nichols discusses the risk of crop failure in relation to land-use intensification and the development of hydraulic agriculture during the Formative period in the northern Basin of Mexico. The study by Tolstoy presents a cultural analysis of the artifacts from two of the earliest known sedentary communities in the Basin of Mexico, Coapexco and Tlatilco. She describes the pottery, figurines, obsidian, and ground stone artifacts from Coapexco, and the graves and grave goods from Tlatilco. Several studies in this collection deal with Santo Domingo Tomaltepec in the Valley of Oaxaca. Topics covered include the evolutionary processes in this community during the early phases of the Formative period in Mesoamerican cultural development, the Early Formative stone tool industry at Santo Domingo, the botany of the site, and an early San José domestic structure and two-room temple. Marcus and Flannery describe the development of sedentary village life in the Valley of Mexico, with a focus on the availability of water; the factors contributing to the development of individual leadership in Tierras Largas society in the Valley of Oaxaca; and the beginnings of chiefdoms and how these chiefdoms competed
