Modernity has been characterized by the internment of people, as a way of torturing and sometimes destroying them. Those practices aim at controlling, subduing and forcing people to comply with social norms, punishing deviation and descent with seclusion and possibly death. As a ubiquitous feature of modernity, archaeology has been paying a growing attention to the study of the materiality of internment. Archaeologies of Internment gathers contributors from different continents and aims at understanding a wide variety of experiences worldwide and also at fostering a less oppressive sociability in the present. As a result, the reader is both enlightened and enticed to join the contributors in their struggle for a liberating archaeology. A most readable book, Archaeologies of Internment is a convincing invitation to a renewed practice of the discipline. --Pedro Paulo A. Funari, former World Archaeological Congress secretary, is professor of historical archaeology at Campinas University, Brazil.
