This book explores the current trends in the social archaeology of human-animal relationships, focusing on the ways in which animals are used to structure, create, support, and even deconstruct social inequalities. The authors provide a global range of case studies from both New and Old World archaeology -- a royal Aztec dog burial, the monumental horse tombs of Central Asia, and the ceremonial macaw cages of ancient Mexico among them. They explore the complex relationships between people and animals in social, economic, political, and ritual contexts, incorporating animal remains from archaeological sites with artefacts, texts, and iconography to develop their interpretations. This book presents new data and interpretations that reveal the role of animals, their products, and their symbolism in structuring social inequalities in the ancient world. The volume will be of interest to archaeologists, especially zoo-archaeologists, and classical scholars of pre-modern civilisations and societies. Contributors: Alejandra Aguirre Molina, Benjamin S Arbuckle, Levent Atici, Douglas V Campana, Roderick Campbell, Ximena Chavez Balderas, Pam J Crabtree, Susan D deFrance, Kitty F Emery, Abigail Holeman, H Edwin Jackson, Leonardo Lopez Lujan, Michael MacKinnon, Arkadiusz Marciniak, Sue Anne McCarty, Neil L Norman, Gilberto Perez, Bernardo Rodriguez, William A Saturno, Ashley E Sharpe, Nawa Sugiyama, Charlotte K Sunseri, Naomi Sykes, Fabiola Torres, Raul Valadez, Norma Valentin Maldonado, Adam S.

I know of no other edited volume in zooarchaeology that has this breadth of coverage, geographically, temporally, and topically ... A very important contribution to the field. Elizabeth Scott, Illinois State University
