Description

How did a bedraggled band of nomads manage to evolve into a Mesoamerican superpower in such a brief time? This volume looks at the essential elements in the Aztecs' rise, fall, and enduring influence.

* Four site maps show the extent of the Aztec realm and the Spanish campaign, plus photographs of archaeological sites, ceramics, and modern descendants of the Aztecs

* An extensive glossary including an overview of Aztec terms referred to throughout the text
