This is THE book on the Incas, for now
on December 9, 2013
Simply the best compilation of information on the Incas, written by one of the culture's most prolific researchers. It's very neutral, quite conscious of its limitations, yet information-dense and really rich in detail. I travelled in Peru while reading this book and made the trip even better, if such a thing is possible. While not necessary, I would recommend some familiarity with archaeology and anthropology to read this book. Only with some previous knowledge can the reader enjoy it to the fullest.
