For an appreciation of the growth of American archaeology over the second half of the twentieth century, one need look no further than the career of Gordon R. Willey. A preeminent archaeologist and New World theorist, Willey made innumerable contributions to the prehistory of the Americas and helped establish the leading methodological and theoretical paradigm used in American archaeology. This volume of original essays gauges the wide-ranging impact of Willey's lifework. The editors have selected ten of his key publications and solicited assessments of their lasting influence from well-known archaeologists. This volume not only analyzes Willey's impact on culture history and archaeological thought but also shows his human side, places his writing in historical context, and offers a unique overview of the growth of American archaeology over the past six decades. About the Author Jeremy A. Sabloff is the Christopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Curator of Mesoamerican Archaeology at the University of Pennsylvania Museum. William L. Fash is the Bowditch Professor of Central American and Mexican Archaeology and Ethnology and the Howells Director of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University.
