Notes, Comments, Reviews:
What the Parsons survey . . . observe[d] and record[ed] is an indispensable basis for any further work in or near the Zumpango region. . . . Included are numerous photos of sites . . . and abundant drawings of sherds and profiles. Fifty-six marvelous color plates of sherds are a high point of the book. They are good enough to show textures and are far more useful for comparative purposes than are most illustrations of ceramics. J. of Anthropological Research, 2010
