    Sinopse

    The ancient Aztecs have always appealed tremendously to Western readers, long fascinated with their iconic architecture, mystical religious beliefs, and once-thriving societies. From the fertile areas of the Oaxaca Valley and the Valley of Mexico to the great deserts of the north, this authoritative resource explores through a meticulously researched text and superb photography the development of the ancient civilizations of the Aztecs and their predecessors. Organized chronologically, it describes the native cultures, from the earliest farming villages to the establishment of great states and urban civilizations such as Teotihuacan and Monte Alban. By investigating the connnections between these civilizations and the much more obscure ones of northern Mexico, it offers readers insight into the birth of new cultures such as the Toltec Empire and the creation of the extensive trade networks linking the Mesoamerican cultures with the ones that developed in the American Southwest. This enormous ethnic and linguistic melting pot culminated in the Aztec civilization, and the book examines its historical events, starting from the mythical original migration in the Valley of Mexico to its political and cultural zenith and, lastly the Aztecs' tragic encouter with the Spanish conquistadors. In-depth studies of specific topics such as the Aztec calendar, religion, society and political organization provide fresh insight on the rich cultural and artistic heritage of the Aztecs. Incorporating the most recent research finding, this book presents fine scholarship in an engaging, lively style that will appeal to a broad readership.
