Editorial Reviews


"An interesting book [that] provokes our thinking about the role of symbolism in ordering Mexican society." -- H. R. Harvey, Ethno-History

"The essays that compose this volume concern the excavations of the Templo Mayor, the Vatican of the Aztec Empire. . . . The material is so fascinating that a layman's interest in the nature of humanity is all that is needed to hold one's attention." -- Tony Hillerman, Los Angeles Times Book Review

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Again, bought for Hubby. It wasn't EXACTLY what he was looking for, but it was a very good textbook. For international delivery, it got to us very quickly. As a used book, it was in SUPERIOR condition. Guess I have to take him to Mexico to satisfy his curious!
