Editorial Reviews


Scott Fedick's The Managed Mosaic is a masterpiece of Mayan scholarship representing the contributions of some of the finest researchers in the field. After an informative introduction to present and contemporary perspectives on Ancient Mayan agriculture and resource use, The Managed Mosaic is divided into major sections: Early Subsistence Adaptation In Southern Mesoamerica And Environmental Change; Managing The Mosaic: Ancient Cultivation Systems; Problems In Agricultural Sustainability: Mismanagement Of The Mosaic; Botanical And Faunal Studies; and Use And Management Of Water And Other Resources. References, an Index, and a Contributors listing make The Managed Mosaic readily useful for students and as an academic reference work on Mayan agricultural practices. The individual contributors hold their monographs and essays to the highest standards of academic. The Managed Mosaic is highly recommended for all Mayan collections. -- Midwest Book Review
