Fascinating 19 Mar 2003
By Los Brushes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Aveni's book is a fascinating portrait of the rhythms and roles of time keeping in a variety of cultures including the Aztec, Inca, Maya, and ancient Chinese. A fascinating exploration of a topic we all too often don't bother to consdier.
