Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael D. Coe's has long been recognized as the most readable and authoritative introduction to the region's ancient civilizations. This companion to his best-selling has now been revised by Professor Coe and Rex Koontz. The seventh edition incorporates new findings in a number of disciplines. The solution to the long-standing puzzle of the origin of maize-farming has at last been solved, and spectacular new discoveries shed light on Mexico's earliest civilization, the Olmec culture. At the great city of Teotihuacan, recent investigations in the earliest monumental pyramid indicate the antiquity of certain sacrificial practices and the symbolism of the pyramid. Expanded information on the Huastec region of the northeastern Gulf of Mexico is included, while discoveries in the sacred precinct of the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan have led to a refined understanding of the history and symbolism of this hallowed area.

Synopsis:

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