La première partie du livre examine la notion de ‘style technologique’ et la préface décrit la technologie dans des termes qui font clairement écho à la façon dont une série d’anthropologues et d’archéologues français envisagent les techniques en tant qu’actions socialisées sur la matière (LeroiGourhan 1943). Cette nouvelle approche ‘technologique’ du style en archéologie s’est constituée partiellement sur un rejet de la théorie de l’échange d’informations proposée par Wobst (voir par exemple Lemonnier 1986, 1992 ; Pfaffenberger 1992 ; Dietler et Herbich 1998 ; Hegmon 1998 ; Dobres 2000).
