Modes of production and archaeology

Robert M. Rosenswig (Editor), Jerimy J. Cunningham (Editor)
This volume challenges the historical materialistic, non-capitalist modes that are used by archaeologists as not all that useful and instead considers how social labor is organized to transform nature into culturally refined and useful resources and how this can either maintain or change a culture. Rather than describe what a society is, using the theoretical framework of Marx and materialism, a mode of production approach explores what a society does in a more dynamic sense
