"In sum, this book is an excellent Baedeker to Rostworowski's fundamental contributions with respect to the documentation and interpretation of pre-Hispanic Andean political economy." Alan L. Kolata, American Historical Review
"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
History of the Inca Realm is a classic work of ethnohistorical research which has been both influential and provocative in the field of Andean prehistory. Maria Rostworowski uses a great variety of published and unpublished documents and secondary works by Latin American, North American, and European scholars to examine Inca society.
