Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is a major, up-to-date synthesis of a large mass of empirical archaeological information, much of it collected during the past ten-to-fifteen years by Bauer and his associates. It also presents a full synthesis of historic and ethno historic sources bearing upon Cuzco and its inhabitants, including many previously unpublished photographs from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that add greatly to the book's overall importance and appeal." Jeffrey R. Parsons, Professor of Anthropology and Curator of Latin American Archaeology, University of Michigan

Mr. Bauer's book is an outstanding resource book for both tourists and academicians of the Inca culture. Even if one never goes to Cuzco (Peruvians prefer Cusco), the illustrations and pictures provide a good sense of the majesty that is and was the center of the Inca universe.

I read this book after my first trip to Cuzco. I deeply regret that I did not read it prior to my trip. While some will undoubtedly find it a bit technical at times, it is concise, easily readable, highly informative, and often fascinating. Chapter 12, "The Mummies of the Royal Inca," was one of the most interesting bits of reading I've enjoyed in some time. I very highly recommend this book.

I truely wish I had read this book before I traveled to Cusco. I think I owuld have appreciated some of the things I saw more. This is THE history of Cusco, with particular emphasis on what the city used to look like, where buildings were, etc.
