Abstract:

"In Ruins and Rivals, James Snead helps us understand the historical development of archaeology in the Southwest from the 1890s to the 1920s and its relationship with the popular conception of the region. He examines two major research traditions: expeditions dispatched from the major eastern museums and those supported by archaeological societies based in the Southwest itself. By comparing the projects of New York's American Museum of Natural History with those of the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles and the Santa Fe-based School of American Archaeology, he illustrates how competition for status and prestige shaped the way that archaeological remains were explored and interpreted.

The decades-long competition between institutions and their advocates ultimately created an agenda for Southwest archaeology that has survived into modern times."--Jacket.
