Book Description

28 Nov 1998
History of the Inca Realm, by Maria Rostworowski de Diez Canseco, is a classic work of ethnohistorical research which has been both influential and provocative in the field of Andean prehistory. Rostworowski uses a great variety of published and unpublished documents and secondary works by Latin American, North American, and European scholars in fields including history, ethnology, archaeology, and ecology, to examine topics such as the mythical origins of the Incas, the expansion of the Inca state, the organization of Inca society, including the political role of women, the vast trading networks of the coastal merchants, and the causes of the disintegration of the Inca state in the face of a small force of Spaniards. At each step, Dr Rostworowski presents her own views, clearly and forcefully, along with those of other scholars, providing her readers with varied evidence from which to draw their own conclusions.

"This is a masterful work, which presents the most complete single volume treatment of the Incas available in English." Bulletin of The Society of Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies

First Sentence
What is called the Inca state was a late development among the high cultures of pre-Hispanic America; millennia separate it from the onset of Andean civilization. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and well written 23 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
A well written and insightful book. Not as dry and dreary as many historical texts. I can't help but think that the author has a slightly romanticised view however.

5.0 out of 5 stars History of the Inca Realm by Maria Rostworowski de Diez Canseco 23 May 2009
By Mary Tania Levy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a wonderful source of information regarding the stablishment of the nobelity in the Inca Empire - Peru - Tawantinsuyu. It explains how they obtained their accomplishments and their way of rulling such vast land.
I love it!!
I got the book about a year ago, I'm still rereading it again and again.
I purchased it used, it arrived on time and as it was described.
Thanks.

I fell in love with Peru!!! I want to learn all there is to know about it and what better than those that have explored it and studied it before I did. I feel enriched with Incan knowledge already...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pachamama 13 Jun 2000
By Jan Chen-Han - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The Inca culture is a very great sourece for the human being. But until now we do not know it very much. We need more and more information to know the true Inca. How ? The Inca is not only the Inca trail or the Machu Picchu, nor the stone only, The trational food, the music, the festive, their language (not the Spanish) ,all of those are the true Inca culture. But we do not see any one investigate it. What is pachamama? It mean the origin of the earth,the source of the earth,the mother of the earth. Where is the Inca now? We need to know the reeason why it disappeared. Maybe the answers will save our future.
