The "liberal's dilemma" in archaeology, how to reconcile the sometimes competing demands of increasingly globally-harmonized professional standards with the concerns of local or descendent communities connected to archaeological sites, observe McManamon (chief archaeologist, US National Park Service), Stout (Eastern regional director, The Archaeological Conservancy), and Barnes (anthropology, American U.), is but one of the complexities involving archaeological practice at different cultural and spatial scales, whether global, national, regional, or local. They present 16 essays, drawn mainly from presentations given at the 2003 Fifth World Archaeological Congress, that address programmatic and policy issues concerning the practice of archaeology and the "liberal's dilemma" at these different cultural and spatial scales. The first three papers take a general approach to the questions of cooperation between indigenous and non-indigenous heritage managers, cultural resources management and development, and regional identities and the cultural resources of the European Union. The remaining papers focus on more specific issues, usually in the context of case studies from around the world. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
