Editorial Reviews


"Rarely does one have the opportunity to read and review a book that must be described as 'uniformly excellent and exciting.' That this volume sums up and makes known to the outside world an amazing decade of progress in Maya scholarship will not be denied. Of the 12 contributors and 13 chapters in this collection, not one is mediocre or unimportant." Charles Lincoln, Latin American Antiquity

"For those who study the Maya, the prehispanic Americas, and preindustrial states, there is much of significance in this collection." Gary M. Feinman, Latin American Anthropology Review

Book Description

This volume is the first to present the results of recent decipherment of Maya hieroglyphic writing and to consider the implications of a Classic Maya written history. Contributors examine how the Maya elite created the kinship, alliance, warfare and ceremonial networks on which the civilization was founded.
