It is not a volume of articles, but a single article:

Lange, Frederick W.
  1986   Central America and the Southwest: A Comparison of Mesoamerica's
         Two Peripheries.  In:  Research and Reflections in Archaeology and
         History: Essays in Honor of Doris Z. Stone (E.W. Andrews V, ed.).
         Middle American Research Institute, Pub. 57.  Tulane University,
         New Orleans, pp. 159-177.

You may be thinking of:

  Ericson, Jonathon E., and Timothy G. Baugh
  1993   The American Southwest and Mesoamerica: Systems of Prehistoric
         Exchange.  Plenum Press, New York.

This latter contains chapters on the Chaco Anasazi, Northern Anasazi,
Hohokam, Mesoamerica/Southwest periphery, Oaxaca Valley, Maya Lowlands,
and southern Central America, as well as chapters on shell and turquoise
trade.  It is a key contribution for anyone interested in trade between
the Southwestern U.S. and regions to the south.

I hope these are helpful.
