Michael D. Coe's Mexico has long been recognized as the mostreadable and authoritative introduction to the region's ancientcivilizations. This companion to his best-selling The Maya hasnow been completely revised by Professor Coe and Rex Koontz. Thesixth edition includes new developments in the birth of agriculture andwriting, both of which were independently invented here. Fresh insightsinto the metropolis of Teotihuacan reveal a world of palaces and warriorcults brought down by social revolts. A spectacular new find in thecenter of the Aztec capital, just unearthed, gives us a privilegedglimpse into the funerary rites of the most powerful monarch in NorthAmerica at the time.
