⇱ Best new Aztecs: An Interpretation (Canto Classics) ⪓ Book Author Inga Clendinnen ⫇ ⇱ Best new Aztecs: An Interpretation (Canto Classics) ⪓ Book Author Inga Clendinnen ⫇ Breakthroughs in historical topics most often come from discoveries of new texts or archaeological finds Not so in this case Here, rereading existing indigenous and Spanish documents particularly the Florentine Codex of de Sahagun , as well as current scholarly literature, has yielded a riveting, fresh perspective on a seemingly exhausted topic, the pre Columbian culture of the Aztecs of Mexico Where previous authors have seen chronicles of empire building, the workings of economic systems, or reconstructions of social organization, Clendinnen finds tonalities of everyday life How did the ordinary people of Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital destroyed by Cortez, make sense of their world How did the warriors, women, priests, and traders understand the brutal practice of human sacrifice for which Aztec society is notorious The author s answers to these and other questions provide the general reader and specialist alike with a powerful, elegantly written interpretation that goes further than any yet in getting inside this extinct culture It deserves a place on the shelf next to Jacques Soustelle Daily Life of the Aztecs , 1961 and Nigel Davies The Aztecs A History , LJ 6 15 74 William S Dancey, Ohio State Univ., ColumbusCopyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc.This is an outstanding books, as rich in its reconstruction of social details as in its lucid analyses of the interior architecture of the Aztec world Clendinnen makes a wonderfully informative and illumiating contribution to our understanding of Aztec society Her book deserves a wide readership The Higher There is no other book quite like this one It is probably the best presentation of the Aztec people, their culture, and their city from the point of view of the Aztecs themselves Michael D Coe, Yale University
