Format: Paperback
This book has proved vital in my studies of Ancient History. I would recommend this book to those studying but also to novices as this book explains really well the history of the Aztecs.

All pictures and photos are in black and white but as this book is mainly used for study this is not a problem.

Excellent book and also very useful for those studying Anthropology.

Great value for money and highly recommended if you have an interest in this subject.

If,like me, you are curious about the Aztec world but not obsessed by it, this is probably the book for you . Unlike other,deadly dry,works on the subject ,which I have tried to read, this one takes the reader through the complex maze that is Aztec history and culture in a clear and concise way without ever being patronising. Richard Townsend is an immensely learned scholar, but he has the knack of cummunicating the structure and beliefs of this,to me at least,strange, and sometimes bizarre, society that flourished for so brief a period.Aztec cosmology and symbolism would in particular,have been a challenge to grasp if one was relying on a lesser author for guidence,but Townsend manages to convey the important concepts in a way that the general reader is able to grasp.

In addition,there is an abundance of well chosen illustrations, some in colour, which serve to clarify and enhance the text,and an impressive bibliography should you wish to further investigate the subject.

It is hard to imagine a better starting-off point for anyone wishing to explore this fascinating Civilisation.

A new revised edition of the book I read in the nineties and now with some of the many excellent illustrations in colour. I am not an expert on the field just the proverbial "general reader" with an interest in the cultures of pre-columbian America, and I liked the book very much as an overall and updated introduction to a facinatiing people with their combination of cruelty and sense of beauty.

This book is written amazingly well and gives you a lot of insight into the lost Aztec civilisation. It covers reasonably well also some of the other Mexican historical presences, as the Olmecs, the Toltects and the Itza'. It's a pleasant item to read, with a beautifully deisgned layout. Pity that most of the pictures are in black and white. How can it be that?
