Description: “An essential guide to the art and architecture of ancient Central America.” Colonial Latin American Historical ReviewMary Ellen Miller evocatively surveys the artistic achievements of the high pre-Columbian civilizationsOlmec, Maya, Teotihuacan, Toltec, Aztecas well as those of their less-well-known contemporaries. Their pyramids and palaces, jades and brightly colored paintings emerge from these pages as vividly as when they first astonished Cortes’s men in 1519. The fifth edition of this standard work incorporates new color images and extensive updates based on the latest research and discoveries. The revisions include a rewritten and extended chapter on Teotihuacan; up-todate analysis of the links between the Olmecs and the Maya; a discussion of new discoveries at the heart of the Aztec capital that continue to astound students of Mexico; and much more.
