Emil W. Haury's Prehistory of the American Southwest

The University of Arizona Press
"Emil Haury stands as one of the finest archaeologists of the American Southwest. He skills were sharpened by the best mentors—Cummings, Douglass, Gladwin—and eventually Haury's excavations became the definitive work on the Mogollon and Hohokam cultures. . . . This work is a 'best of Haury' collection of many of his previously published works, with excellent introductory essays by colleagues and noted archaeologists—gathered into one, readable volume."—Choice
Emil Haury is virtually beyond compare among southwestern archaeologists....the republication together of so many so many seminal publications is in itself a powerful commentary on the history and direction of Americanist archaeology."—American Antiquity

"Will be of considerable interest to those who are serious in learning about the Southwest's prehistory and wish to gain insight concerning the process of archaeological discovery."—The Explorer

"This is an especially valuable and unique book on southwestern archaeology. Not only does it pull together many of the most significant and diverse writings of a long-time leader in the field, but it has succinct descriptions and straightforward appraisals of the wide range of endeavors in which Emil Haury participated."—New Mexico Historical Review

"This collection of Haury's best papers gives added value with its updated bibliographies, one of which is a complete listing of the publication of Emil W. Haury, the doyen of southwestern archaeologists."—Books of the Southwest
