Long established as the best general introduction to the New World's greatest ancient civilization. This edition places new emphasis on the Preclassic period, discussing the rise of cities such as Nakbe and El Mirador during the first millenium BC. Includes an Index and numerous photos. "The maps and line figures are so well integrated into the text that visual understanding of the Maya is also obtained." The plates and a select bibliography of most of the major works enhance the value of this book." - Michael D. Coe
