  • Description: "In 1994, the Society for American Archaeology took the unprecedented step of surveying its entire membership, as well as a sampling of other American archaeologists, to assess the state of archaeology as a profession. The results were startling, tracking a discipline rapidly expanding beyond its academic roots with the explosive growth of government and private sector archaeology. Gender inequity has become more subtle, though it is still evident. These and other important insights form the core of this survey report, the first systematic attempt to capture the state of the discipline in terms of training, job and salary distribution, research interests, publications, and funding. Important reading for all professional archaeologists, their students, and those who study gender and work issues."--Jacket.
