Daily Life in Inca Empire (08 Edition)by Michael A. Malpass
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Unlike most studies of the Incas, this book reconstructs the daily life not only of the ruling Inca elite but also of the rest of the society, including the conquered peoples. From food and drink to religious rituals, the major aspects of life at all levels in the Inca empire are here described and explained in a clear, accessible way. Over fifty illustrations are included, as are a historical timeline of the Inca empire, a glossary, and a bibliography.
Book News Annotation:
Malpass (anthropology, Ithaca College) looks beyond the ruling elite that dominate most accounts of the South American empire to look at how other members of Inca society lived as well. He emphasizes life in the capital of Cuzco, and presents more of a female perspective than previous books. Politics and society, private life and culture, religion, the Inca contribution to modern Andean culture, and preserving the past are among the topics.
