From the first settlements of the Olmecs in Mesoamerica, and South America's great mud-brick cities on Peru's Pacific coast, to the arrival of the Spanish in 1519, the book's unparalleled breadth and scope allow us to appreciate the Pre-Columbian Americas as among the world's greatest flowerings of civilisation."--Jacket." ;
