Fischer’s interest in glassblowers as persons and the conditions under which they worked gives her writing a compelling immediacy. Her empathy is palpable in the final two chapters of the book, which focus on the ways in which craftspeople acquire and think about glassblowing skills and on the physical effects of glassblowing on the individual over a lifetime.

Within the broader context of the Anthropology of Craft, this volume examines ancient glass-blowers at the site of Sepphoris, in northern Israel. By drawing upon the knowledge and experience of current Middle-Eastern and American glass-workers to interpret the artifacts excavated at the site, the author is able to create a picture of the life and work of craftspeople living 1500 years ago.

Hot Pursuit is about glass-blowing in antiquity and today. It shows how using a variety of anthropological methods to answer an archaeological question yields an intriguing glimpse into the lives of glass-blowers in antiquity.

The ancient world is conceived here as it is at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University, my academic home at the time AWOL was launched. That is, from the Pillars of Hercules to the Pacific, from the beginnings of human habitation to the late antique, early Islamic period.

Within the broader context of the Anthropology of Craft, this volume examines ancient glass-workers at the site of Sepphoris, in northern Israel. By drawing upon the knowledge and experience of current Middle-Eastern glass-workers to interpret the artifacts excavated at the site, Fischer is able to create a picture of the life and work of craftspeople living 1500 years ago. Firmly based in anthropological archaeology and ethnoarchaeology, Hot Pursuit incorporates methods drawn from the four fields of anthropology and calls for more integration among the sub-fields.

Fischer is a real hands-on glass worker as well as an anthropologist. As such she is able to describe an ancient Israeli glass industry site with a practiced eye and the ability to distinguish real conclusions from speculation. She reviews the ancient relics, compares the findings with leftovers from modern mideastern sites, studies the practice of native workers from several other countries, builds test equipment based on the ancient specifications, uses it and reports her findings.

In a way parts of this book are explorations similar to books written by modern flint knappers, such as Whittaker: Flintknapping: Making and Understanding Stone Tools, however since hot glass working is so much more dangerous and obscure her work is much more of a feat of experimental archaeology than Whittaker's living tradition. Bravo!
