Archaeological Book Reviews
There are several reasons that I do all this reviewing.
- It helps me organise my thoughts about a book and to remember what I've read.
- It allows me to take part in the scholarly debate with much greater frequency and shorter delay than if I only expressed my opinions as part of scholarly papers and books. A reviewer needn't present any investigations of his own, but he must express opinions.
- Book reviews help qualify a scholar for grants and jobs.
