Presents a new model for the origins of Basketmaker II culture based on the evolution of maize use, one that focuses on the changes in maize growing rather than on the changes in, or to, the people
It represents the only up-to-date synthesis of the Archaic and early agricultural periods that considers the entire Southwest, and it should provide researchers with a much fuller picture of this complex issue than has been available before.


Should be read by any archaeologist wishing to enter [this] increasingly revitalized debate.
