This six-part series presents the definitive history of archaeology, a 250-year worldwide odyssey that began with the unearthing of the ruins of Pompeii buried beneath the ash of Mt. Vesuvius. In a short time, archaeologists started pursuing very different objectives: some were treasure-seekers hoping to plunder antiquities of the ancient world; others sought to prove theories about the origins of civilization or the historical accuracy of Homer or the Bible; still others focused on humans themselves, trying to determine the age of the species. The series also looks at how archaeology has been misused as an instrument of foreign policy and where the study is going in the future with new technologies and methods.

In 1999, ABC-CLIO published the two-volume Encyclopedia of Archaeology: The Great Archaeologists, which took a biographical approach to the field. This next installment of the Encyclopedia of Archaeology takes a more standard topical approach, with entries covering the history of archaeology in specific countries or regions as well as "the histories of significant sites, debates, techniques, methods and issues that are central to the global practice of the discipline." Examples include Abydos, Babylonian civilization, Dating, Chaco Canyon, Industrial archaeology, Iran, Sweden, and Terracotta warriors. There are also entries for individuals (Thomas Jefferson) who did not appear in the earlier volumes and a few (Howard Carter) who did.

 Negotiating for the Past: Archaeology, Nationalism, and Diplomacy in the Middle East, 1919-1941

James F. Goode " Negotiating for the Past: Archaeology, Nationalism, and Diplomacy in the Middle East, 1919-1941 "
University of Texas Press | Pages: 307 | 2007-07-01 | ISBN-029271498X | 4.9 MB

This book lacks some indispensable sources on the history of archaeological explorations in Southwest Asia (or what has been called Middle East) in the period between the two World Wars. The main theme upon which the author concentrates is that the rise of a sort of nationalism or nationalistic governments in Egypt, Iran, and Turkey led to manifold uses of historical relics and monuments in order to foment the countries' development. The focus of the book is apparently Iran in the 1930s, but the author doesn't seem to be in full control of his sources. Having said that, the book takes advantage of a number of US archival documents, which is the positive point, but they should have been checked and used along with other unpublished and published sources (French and Iranian archives, in particular)in order to produce a substantial study of the history of archaeology in the Middle East.

The Vietnam war continues to be the focus of intense controversy. While most people - liberals, conservatives, Democrats, Republicans, historians, pundits, and citizens alike - agree that the United States did not win the war, a vocal minority argue the opposite or debate why victory never came, attributing the quagmire to everything from domestic politics to the press.
