3 COE, MICHAEL D. The Maya.
Thames and Huddon, London: 2005. Seventh Edition - Fully Revised and Expanded. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The Maya has long been established as the best, most readable introduction to the New World's greatest ancient civilization. Professor Coe distils a lifetime's scholarship for the general reader and student. Since the previous edition, new sites have been uncovered and further excavations in old sites have proceeded at an unprecedented pace. Among the many new discoveries is the chance find of extraordinary murals dating to c. AD 100 at San Bartolo in the Peten. New 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 in central Mexico. The previously little-known centre of Ek' Bahlam in northeastern Yucatan has turned out to be a regional kingdom of major importance, with extraordinary stucco reliefs and a plethora of painted inscriptions. The 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. Michael D. Coe is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Yale University. His many other books include Mexico (with Rex Koontz; a companion to The Maya), The True History of Chocolate (with Sophie D. Coe), Breaking the Maya Code, Reading the Maya Glyphs (with Mark Van Stone) and Angkor and the Khmer Civilization, all published by Thames & Hudson.
