Congratulations on your success, if so. :)

I should say that I have no idea whether I'm up to date or not, though I'd
definitely doubt it. This isn't one of my primary areas-- I'm just nosy. I
like

Brumfiel and Fox, eds. (1994). Factional competition and Political
Development in the New World. Cambridge University Press.

Brumfiel and Earle, eds. (1987). Specialization, Exchange and Complex
Societies. Cambridge University Press.

Murra, John Victor (1980). The Economic Organization of the Inka State. JAI
Press. (A doctoral dissertation from the 1950s, and classic. There have
since been many other books in the area, but I liked to have my students
read this.)

And of course there are plenty of other things. Since my training is as an
economist, I am particularly fond of publications in which careful taxonomic
distinctions are made between markets and social organization, and my leedle
list reflects that.
