World-systems Theory in Practice: Leadership, Production, and Exchange
P. Nick Kardulias
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 1999 - Social Science - 326 pages
The assumption of simple core/periphery relationships is under challenge. Not only are scholars like Kristian Kristiansen focusing increasingly on the cultural changes which `peripheral' societies initiated in the `core', but also, as this book shows, the mechanisms of domination necessary to manage the periphery are not archaeological apparent in practice in `core' societies. The contributors to this volume reevaluate World Systems Theory in the light of work in the Old and New Worlds. Contents include: The changing structure of macroregional Mesoamerica: the Classic-Postclassic transition in the valley of Oaxaca (Gary Feinman); Negotiated peripherality in Iron Age Greece: accepting and resisting the East (Ian Morris); Production within and beyond Imperial boundaries: Goods, exchanges and power in Roman Europe (Peter Wells).
