Michael D. Coes Mexico has long been recognized as the most readable and authoritative introduction to the regions ancient civilizations. Now this companion volume to Professor Coes bestselling The Maya has been completely revised and expanded for the fourth edition. Enlarged sections are included on early village life and the rise of Olmec civilization. Extraordinary recent discoveries - such as the stela from La Mojarra inscribed in the mysterious Isthmian script or the mass sacrifice of 200 victims at Teotihuacan - receive full coverage. A new chapter on Aztec life and society has also been added, based on fresh readings of the ethnohistorical sources. Despite the cataclysm of the Spanish Conquest and ensuing epidemics, the native peoples of Mexico survived through the Colonial period. Describing their heroic struggle in a new Epilogue, the author makes clear just how much the character of modern Mexico derives from its Pre-Columbian past.--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
