The archaeology of liberty in an American capital excavations in Annapolis by Mark P Leone( )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What do archaeological excavations in Annapolis, Maryland, reveal about daily life in the city's history? Considering artifacts such as ceramics, spirit bundles, printer's type, and landscapes, this engaging, generously illustrated, and original study illuminates the lives of the city's residents--walking, seeing, reading, talking, eating, and living together in freedom and in oppression for more than three hundred years. Interpreting the results of one of the most innovative projects in American archaeology, The Archaeology of Liberty in an American Capital speaks powerfully to the struggle for liberty among African Americans and the poor
Roots of modern Mormonism by Mark P Leone( Book )
6 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mark Leone comes to new conclusions about the evolution of Mormonism, both as a self-sufficient religious sect and as a movement within the broader context of American history. Applying the tools of anthropology for the first time to this subject, he identifies the features that have allowed an outcast utopia of the nineteenth century to achieve worldwide success in the twentieth. The author explores the ways in which a minority survives in a hostile environment, both physical and cultural. He focuses especially on the Mormon settlements of eastern Arizona, whose rich records reveal in microcosm the workings of a modern theocracy. The early Mormon radicalism emerges as an appropriate response to contemporary conditions. With the shift of Mormonism from independence to colonial status at the turn of the century, Mormon ideas begin their transformation to conservatism, again illustrating the flexibility that is a key to the religion's stunning success. Leone's broad range of sources, including diaries, native histories, judicial records, and correspondence, gives a full picture of Mormon life and history. He has also done extensive ethnographic field work in the Mormon settlements along the Little Colorado River, so as to be able to describe the movement in its own terms
Contemporary archaeology; a guide to theory and contributions by Mark P Leone( Book )
19 editions published between 1972 and 1980 in English and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Invisible America is a visual guide to five hundred years of North American history and culture, from the 1490s to the 1990s, that uses artifacts of everyday life to tell long-neglected stories from our past. It weaves photos, text, and maps into lively two-page spreads that explore forgotten facets of life in each era of American history, from the pre-Colonial period to modern times
Historical archaeologies of capitalism by Mark P Leone( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
American things, American material culture, and American archaeology are the themes of this book. The authors use goods used or made in America to illuminate issues such as tenancy, racism, sexism, and regional bias. Contributors utilize data about everyday objects - from tin cans and bottles to namebrand items, from fish bones to machinery - to analyze the way American capitalism works. Their cogent analyses take us literally from broken dishes to the international economy. Especially notable chapters examine how an archaeologist formulates questions about exploitation under capitalism, and how the study of artifacts reveals African-American middle class culture and its response to racism
Critical historical archaeology by Mark P Leone( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How can we use the past to make sense of the issues and problems that concern us in the present? Mark Leone, the leading critical theorist in historical archaeology, urges archaeologists to view their discipline as an activist pursuit. This volume is partly his autobiographical reflection on a thirty five year career, part a collection of Leone's classic writings on Annapolis, Williamsburg, Shakertown, St. Mary's, and other key sites, and part a synthesis of his current thinking on how historical archaeology can engage the cultural and political issues of our time. Critical Historical Archaeology is an important summary of the work and thinking of one of our most thoughtful, influential archaeologists. --Book Jacket

Deferred compilation : the automation of run-time code generation by Mark P Leone( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "This paper describes deferred compilation, an alternative and complement to compile-time program analysis and optimization. By deferring aspects of compilation to run time, exact information about programs can be exploited, leading to greater opportunities for code improvement. This is in contrast to the use of static analyses, which are inherently conservative. Deferred compilation automates the translation of ordinary programs into native machine code that performs fast optimization and native-code generation at run time
Optimizing ML with run-time code generation by Mark P Leone( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "We describe the design and implementation of a compiler that automatically translates ordinary programs written in a subset of ML into code that generates native code at run time. Run-time code generation can make use of values and invariants that cannot be exploited at compile time, yielding code that is superior to statically optimal code. But the cost of optimizing and generating code at run time can be prohibitive. We demonstrate how compile-time specialization can reduce the cost of run-time code generation by an order of magnitude without greatly affecting code quality. Several benchmark programs are examined, which exhibit an average cost of six cycles per instruction generated at run time."
