dc.description.abstractArchaeologists have long recognized the fact that long distance relationships existed in prehistoric societies. There have been many efforts to develop models for a satisfactory explanation for interactions and social change among groups. World Systems Theory, developed by Immanuel Wallerstein, is one such effort to examine mechanisms of inter-societal relationships and a determination of units of analysis for Pre-Columbian societies. To utilize this theory, archaeologists have made modifications and expansions to the theory, determining the advantage of using a world systems perspective, rather than all aspects of the model. An examination of Wallerstein’s theory, as well as assessments and concerns regarding modifications, is examined. The premise that societies do not exist in isolation is one that should concern all archaeologists.en
