Papers of the New World Archaeological Foundation Number Seventy. 2010.

This volume is an in-depth study of the small archaeological site of Canajasté, a defensively positioned, walled town nestled in a bend of the Lagartero River in the Chiapas Highlands of southern Mexico. Michael Blake selected this site for his doctoral investigation because it appeared to have been the political seat of a small, independent polity, most likely a secondary state.

Because the formulation and implementation of this research took place in the 1980s when archaeologists were especially concerned with understanding the systematic processes that underline social change, Blake planned his research to investigate exactly what social processes were responsible at this location for the formation and perpetuation of this particular form of sociopolitical organization.

Consequently, the resulting dissertation, as well as the present volume, which is an updated version of the dissertation, is an example of exceptionally well-crafted archaeological research.
