Archaeology Under Fire: Nationalism, Politics and Heritage in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415164702 | edition 1998 | PDF | 251 pages | 3,6 mb
The Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean are one of the most politically charged regions in which archaeology is implicated. Historically, they played a formative role in the birth of archaeology as a discipline. Archaeology Under Fire addresses archaeology's role in current political issues, as in the ethnic cleansing in the Balkans, the division of Cyprus, or the continued destruction of Beirut. The contributors consider the positive role of the past, as a means of reconciliation, whether it be in Turkey, Israel, or the Gulf. They advocate a responsible global archaeology and awareness of contemporary issues can only enhance this aim.
