Book Reviews for Southeastern Archaeology

Southeastern Archaeology accepts book reviews for publication that might be of interest to our membership.

Information for Publishers

Books for review should be mailed to the Associate Editor (Book Reviews).

Information for Reviewers

Persons eligible to review include MA and Ph.D. students in Anthropology/Archaeology programs, professionals in Cultural Resource Management or other related field, and professionals at academic institutions.  Requests to review and review submissions should be emailed to the Associate Editor (Book Reviews).  Please look at the list of books available for review below, or you may request books not otherwise reviewed in the journal.

You will receive a review copy with the understanding that you will provide a review within three months of receipt of the book. Should you anticipate problems meeting this deadline, please contact me. In the case of unreasonably long delays, I will ask you to return the book so that I can send it to another colleague.

The general format of the text of the review should follow American Antiquity style. That also means that citations should be used sparingly, if at all, and reviews should not include a bibliography.  Use section 3.5 of the American Antiquity style guide for instructions on formatting any references in the text as complete, shortened, parenthetical references.  Reviews are limited to 1200 words.

The heading should include a complete citation indicating number of pages; the presence of illustrations, tables, bibliography, appendices, and index; and price. The description of pages and illustrations should be pulled from the Library of Congress catalog. The header should look like the following:

Across the Atlantic Ice: Origins of America's Clovis Culture. Dennis J. Stanford and Bruce A. Bradley, with foreword by Michael B. Collins. University of California Press, Berkeley, 2012. xv, 319 pp., ill., maps. $34.95 (cloth), ISBN: 978-0-520-22783-5; $27.95 (paper), ISBN: 978-0-520-94967-6; $15.00 (ebook), ISBN: xxx-x-xxx-xxxxx-x.

The footer appears after the review, and should look like:

John M. Smith
Department of Anthropology, University of Higher Learning
123 Main Ave., Good Town, ST, 45678

The review should be sent as an email attachment in MS Word format, but most other word processing formats are also acceptable.
