University of Utah Press,
Pub. Date:
LeBlanc (archaeology, UCLA) tackles a subject that he admits is not pleasant; but he overcame his initial aversion to the subject when he found abundant evidence conflicting with a romanticized picture of the ancient Pueblo people of the Southwest as peaceful, sedentary corn farmers. He takes a pan-Southwestern view and considers archaeological and ethnohistorical evidence and oral traditions to assemble his detailed, scholarly presentation.

display_description "Most people today, including many archaeologists, view the Pueblo people of the Southwest as historically peaceful, sedentary corn farmers. In Prehistoric Warfare in the American Southwest Steven LeBlanc demonstrates how the prevailing picture of the ancient Puebloans is highly romanticized. Taking a pan-Southwestern view of the entire prehistoric and early historic time range and considering archaeological and ethnohistorical evidence and oral traditions, he presents a different picture."--BOOK JACKET. "Objectively sought, evidence of war and its consequences is abundant. The people of the region fought for their survival and evolved their societies to meet the demands of conflict."--BOOK JACKET
