"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
