Abstract:

Annotation

Outlines the complex cultural history of Mesoamerica and the Andean continuum, combining an overview of pre-Columbian historical events with consideration of important research problems. Contains sections on specific periods and peoples, and on basic questions, approaches to research, and unsolved problems, with readable summaries under many subheadings, drawing on available data from English, Spanish, French, and German sources. Includes chronologies, genealogies, and b&w maps. Originally published as "Geschichte Altamerikas" in 1989 by R. Oldenbourg Verlag, Munich. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Annotation

Outlining the long and complex cultural history of Mesoamerica and the Incas, this volume places the last flowering of the Aztecs and Incas into their respective geographic and sociocultural frameworks. A final section offers a topically arranged bibliography of over a thousand entries. An essential reference.
