About the Author

Esther Pasztory is the Lisa and Bernard Selz Professor in Pre-Columbian Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University. She teaches the art of both Mesoamerica and the Andes and focuses on the work of art as a source of evidence for the reconstruction of ancient cultures related to but separate from archaeological and textual data.

Format: Paperback
A wonderful book; I'd buy another like it in a heartbeat. For Mesoamerican/Aztec cultural arts fans, this is a "must buy" and makes a SUPER gift!

Anyone serious about understanding the Aztec mind and social order should read both "Time and Sacrifice in the Aztec Cosmos" (K. A. Read) and also, "THE JADE STEPS" by Burr Cartwright Brundage (University of Utah Press; (c)1985; ISBN# 0-87480-247-4). FYI, Dr. Brundage has authored nearly a dozen extraordinarily well written and researched books on Aztec civilization; most are (sadly) tough to find.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
From the back cover: "Pasztory has placed these major works of Pre-Columbian art in a historical context, relating them to the reigns of individual rulers, events in Aztec history, and the needs of different social groups from the elite to the farmer. She focuses on the little-known aspects of the aesthetics, poetry, and humanity of the Aztecs.

In 1984 the book received a Special Citation from the Charles Rufus Morey Book Award Committee of the College Art Association."

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best books I have ever purchased regarding the Aztecs. It gives great background to Mesoamerican civilizations as well as a detailed history regarding the Aztec world. The book contains excellent pictures and descriptions of every piece of Aztec art you could possibly think of. I have been to the Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City and most if not all works at the museum are featured in this book. I would highly recommend this work to anyone interested in Aztec civilization, Aztec art, or art in general.
