Mexico : from the Olmecs to the Aztecs by Michael D Coe( Book )

126 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 4,899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael D. Coe's Mexico has long been recognized as the most readable and authoritative introduction to the region's ancient civilizations. Now this companion volume to Professor Coe's bestselling The Maya has been completely revised and expanded for the fourth edition. Enlarged sections are included on early village life and the rise of Olmec civilization. Extraordinary recent discoveries - such as the stela from La Mojarra inscribed in the mysterious Isthmian script or the mass sacrifice of 200 victims at Teotihuacan - receive full coverage. A new chapter on Aztec life and society has also been added, based on fresh readings of the ethnohistorical sources." "Despite the cataclysm of the Spanish Conquest and ensuing epidemics, the native peoples of Mexico survived through the Colonial period. Describing their heroic struggle in a new Epilogue, the author makes clear just how much the character of modern Mexico derives from its Pre-Columbian past."--Jacket

The true history of chocolate by Sophie D Coe( Book )

57 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 1,894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The food of the gods": Delicious indulgence or cause of migraines? Aphrodisiac or medicinal tonic? Religious symbol or Mesoamerican currency? This tale of one of the world's favorite foods draws upon botany, archaeology, socioeconomics and culinary history to present for the first time a complete and accurate history of chocolate. The story begins some 3000 years ago in the jungles of lowland Mexico and Central America, with the tree Theobroma cacao and the complex processes necessary to transform its bitter seeds into a beverage. Chocolate was consumed in generally unsweetened liquid form and used as currency by the sophisticated Maya, and the Aztecs after them. The Spanish conquest of Central America introduced chocolate to Europe as a luxury item; then industrialization made it a food for the masses. From Maya hieroglyphs to the Hershey Bar, this is a fascinating history, enhanced with quotations, illustrations and old recipes.--From publisher description

The Maya by Michael D Coe( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 1,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Maya has long been established as the best and most readable introduction to the New World's greatest ancient civilization. In these pages Professor Coe distills a lifetime's scholarship for the general reader and student." "Now, for the sixth edition, Professor Coe incorporates the latest ideas and research in a fast-changing field. Spectacular tomb discoveries at the city of Copan reveal some of the early artistic and architectural splendors at this major site. New finds here and elsewhere entail a complete reinterpretation of the relationship between the warrior-kings of the Classic Maya lowlands and Teotihuacan, the greatest city of pre-Conquest America. Continuing epigraphic breakthroughs - decipherments of Maya inscriptions - demonstrate vividly the shifting power blocs among the competing Maya city-states." "Special features of this revised edition are a new guide to visiting the Maya area and lists of rulers for the major Classic cities, never before published in this form."--Jacket
Royal cities of the ancient Maya by Michael D Coe( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the rise and fall of Maya civilization through its great royal cities, from El Mirador, the largest and oldest, to the rival city-states of the Classical period such as Tikal, Calakmul, Yaxchilán, Palenque, Toniná, and Copán. He then moves on to the great cities of the Terminal Classic period; at a time when the mighty centers of the southern lowlands were in a steep decline, cities to the north such as Uxmal and Kabah achieved a pinnacle of architectural beauty. After that he turns to the Postclassic period and Chichén Itzá in central Yucatán, a huge, cosmopolitan city that flourished during a military and cultural takeover by the Toltecs of central Mexico

The Maya by Michael D Coe( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Maya has long been established as the best, most readable introduction to the New World's greatest ancient civilization. In its pages Professor Coe distills a lifetime's scholarship for the general reader and student, presenting the latest findings, most exciting scholarship and freshest perspectives on Maya culture. Since the publication of the previous edition, new sites have been uncovered and further excavations in old sites have proceeded at an unprecedented pace. New epigraphic, archaeological and osteological research has thrown light on the identity of the "founding fathers'' of such great sites as Tikal and Copan, and their close affiliation with Teotihuacan. The previously little-known centre of Ek' Bahlam in northeastern Yucatan has emerged as a regional kingdom of major importance, with extraordinary stucco reliefs and a plethora of painted inscriptions. This seventh edition also presents new evidence for the use of wetlands by the Classic Maya, and fresh perspectives on the catastrophic demise of Classic civilization by the close of the ninth century. A new edition of an accessible introduction to the ancient New World civilization incorporates the latest archaeological findings, including the discoveries of San Bartolo murals, new information about the founders of the Tikal and Copan communities, and the regional significance of the Ek' Balam kingdom
