"...will have lasting value as an authroitatuve reference." Choice
"This is an impressie two-part overview of the history of the indigenous people of Mesoamerica from earliest times to the present...the contributions vary in depth and quality, but fortunately the variation is between good and excellent...these books are extremely useful...The authors and editors are to be commended." American Historical Review
The Cambridge History of the Native Peoples of the Americas, Volume II: Mesoamerica, gives a comprehensive and authoritative overview of all the important native civilizations of the Mesoamerican area, beginning with archaeological discussions of paleoindian, archaic and preclassic societies and continuing to the present. Fully illustrated and engagingly written, the book is divided into sections that discuss the native cultures of Mesoamerica before and after their first contact with the Europeans. The various chapters balance theoretical points of view as they trace the cultural history and evolutionary development of such groups as the Olmec, the Maya, the Aztec, the Zapotec, and the Tarascan.
