Art of Mesoamerica : From Olmec To Aztec (5TH 12 Edition)by Mary Ellen Miller
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Mary Ellen Miller evocatively surveys the artistic achievements of the high pre-Columbian civilizations--Olmec, Maya, Teotihuacan, Toltec, Aztec--as well as those of their less-well-known contemporaries. Their pyramids and palaces, jades and brightly colored paintings emerge from these pages as vividly as when they first astonished Cortes's men in 1519. The fifth edition of this standard work incorporates new color images and extensive updates based on the latest research and discoveries. The revisions include a rewritten and extended chapter on Teotihuacan; up-todate analysis of the links between the Olmecs and the Maya; a discussion of new discoveries at the heart of the Aztec capital that continue to astound students of Mexico; and much more.
"An essential guide to the art and architecture of ancient Central America." --
