“Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students,faculty, professionals.” (Choice, 1 May2013)
“Entangled is nothing less than a reframing ofarchaeological enquiry into things. It is a fundamental,first-principles rethinking of how archaeologists should understandthe world around them.”
- Matthew H. Johnson, Northwestern University
"This book is a provocative and exciting contribution toarchaeological theory and beyond. Its central thesis is thatentanglement is both a condition of being in the world and aprocess of linking entities together in networks orassemblages. In charting a course across material, social,and evolutionary domains, it provides a novel way of bridging theGreat Divide between the social and natural sciences."
