Arizona State University Anthropological Research Papers

Established in 1969 and published under Arizona Board of Regents copyright, the Arizona State University Anthropological Research Papers (ARP) was a peer-reviewed monograph series dedicated to the publication of original monograph-length single-authored or collected works concerned with topics generally regarded as anthropological in nature. All aspects of anthropology were considered for publication; there were no geographical or subdisciplinary restrictions.

Part of the mission of the School of Human Evolution and Social Change (SHESC) at Arizona State University, is to create and share new knowledge with the world. The faculty and alumni of SHESC produced the Anthropological Research Papers series so that wide audiences could learn about the latest anthropological research findings and the resulting applications to society. Most recently edited by Geoffrey A. Clark, there are 60 monographs in this collection.
