Local Participants and Imperial Trajectories
This book demonstrates how archaeological research can contribute to our conceptualization of empires across disciplinary boundaries.
Contributors to this volume examine the political uses--and misuses--of archaeology in the Middle East using a variety of case studies, including the Taliban's destruction of Buddhas in Afghanistan, the commercialization of archaeology in Israel, the training of Egyptian archaeology inspectors, and the debate over Turkish identity sparked by the film Troy, among other provocative subjects.
