"In archaeology it is impossible, no matter what your nationality or where you conduct research, to escape the fallout from US interventions. This book effectively charts those effects and future ramifications for host countries and researchers. It exposes our constitutive disciplinary inheritances and responsibilities for the future." " Lynn Meskell, Stanford University"
