A methodological tour de force.
Schachner's multi-scalar and multi-disciplinary study of a well-defined region of the Puebloan Southwest, in order to understand mobility and interaction both within and outside of that region, is an outstanding model of how contemporary archaeology can answer challenging questions about the past.
–John Kantner, author of Ancient Puebloan Southwest
Authors in other parts of the world have cautioned on using too rigid a concept of community, but Schachner is the first to successfully apply his multidimensional approach to an area many assumed was structured differently.
–E. Charles Adams, author of Homol'ovi: An Ancient Hopi Settlement Cluster
