W. Adams updates his widely adopted text with material from recent archaeological fieldwork to present a balanced summary and overview of the region that is today Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, and Honduras. Following an introduction to Mesoamerican studies, a brief geographic sketch of the region, and a summary of the major features of its civilizations, Adams examines in detail each period of cultural history: the first immigrants- the Olmec and their contemporaries- Maya beginnings and classic civilization- the great cities of Teotihuacan and Monte Alban- the rise and fall of the Toltec- and the civilizations of the Tarascans, Zapotecs, Mixtecs, Totonacs, and Aztecs.
