This book admirably meets the long-standing need for a volume that enables students and professionals to access both early and recent archaeological research in this large and archaeologically important area.
—William Lipe, past president, Society for American Archaeology
The work of the present authors in northwestern Mexico has added greatly to our knowledge of the Northwest/Southwest, and their work continues to challenge many of the interpretations of the Joint Casas Grandes Expedition, as readers will see.
—John Ware, The Amerind Foundation
Michael Whalen and Paul Minnis have made major contributions to the archaeology of Casas Grandes, its history, and its region. In this volume, they bring together the leading researchers to survey the state of Casas Grandes prehistory. And the view is rich, exciting, and hopeful! A key volume for anyone interested in the ancient Southwest, and one of its most important chapters.
—Stephen H. Lekson, author of A History of the Ancient Southwest
