Mexico: From the Olmecs to the Aztecs (Ancient Peoples & Places Mexico) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael D. Coe's Mexico has long been recognized as the most readable and authoritative introduction to the region's ancient civilizations. This companion to his best-selling The Maya has now been completely revised by Professor Coe and Rex Koontz.

The sixth edition includes new developments in the birth of agriculture and writing, both of which were independently invented here. Fresh insights into the metropolis of Teotihuacan reveal a world of palaces and warrior cults brought down by social revolts. A spectacular new find in the center of the Aztec capital, just unearthed, gives us a privileged glimpse into the funerary rites of the most powerful monarch in North America at the time.

Synopsis:

A pioneering synthesis.Fascinating reading...an accessible, informed and extremely well illustrated introductory book.Compendious ...the first history that puts the subject in its full geographical and climatic context.

Synopsis:

"Masterly....The complexities of Mexico's ancient cultures are perceptively presented and interpreted."—Library Journal
