..".this book represents a good discussion of the architecture of the North Coast and Central Coast of Peru. This book calls attention to the importance of ritual architecture as a force of social and ritual transformation...I do recommend this book to anyone working on ancient architectual form and on applying new approaches to recognize archaeological patterning." Journal of Field Archaeology
