Résumé:

"In City of Sacrifice, Carrasco chronicles the fascinating story of Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital, investigating Aztec religious practices and demonstrating that religious violence was integral to urbanization; the city itself was a temple to the gods. And Mexico City, the largest city on earth, was built on the ruins of Tenochtitlan, a point Carrasco poignantly considers in his survey of urbanization from antiquity to modernity."--Jacket.
