Abstract

Casas Grandes (Paquime) has gained prominence as the subject of books and articles since Charles C. Di Peso and his colleagues, John Rinaldo and GIoria Fenner, published their 8-volume master­ work in 1974: Casas Grandes: A Fallen Trading Center of the Gran Chichimeca. The volume reviewed here contains an introduction by the editors followed by 18 essays written by 28 scholars, and organized into 4 sections: The Core Area (7); The Outer Sphere (3); The Larger View (7); and Toward a New Synthesis (I). It is dedicated  to the memory of J. Charles Kelley and Daniel Wolfman, and the death of Oement Meighan, one of the contributors, is noted in the Acknowledg­ments. This volume is the product of a 1995 symposium - "The Casas Grandes Interaction Sphere: Origins, Nature, Contacts, and Legacy" - held as part of the Durango (Colorado) Conference on Southwest Archaeology.
