For this second edition, the author has completely revised and rewritten the text to include a wealth of recent research, adding many new illustrations. The chapter on the enigmatic Olmecs - the putative "mother culture" of Mesoamerica - has been greatly expanded. The city of Teotihuacan is re-evaluated, exploring its influence on the ideologies and aesthetic styles of many subsequent cultures. The ongoing decipherment of Maya glyphs is shown to shed new light on the art of that great civilization. New discoveries from San Lorenzo, El Manati, Monte Alban, Tikal, and Copan - to name but a few - are all included here, making this the most up-to-date account for the art historian, student, and visitor alike."--Jacket."@en ;
