Schele & Mathews,two of the world's most gifted epigraphers, explore the meaning of the most beautiful Maya monuments and cities. They explain in detail the significance of symbolism against the backdrop of Maya government, politics, and the advanced cultures of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica. Anyone who has traveled or hopes to travel to Chichen Itza, Palenque, Tikal or the other cities they describe will have a new appreciation for the achievements of the Maya culture. Schele and Mathews take the reader on a time-journey to unlock the mysteries of the greatest culture of the western hemisphere. Beautifully and profusely illustrated, this book will be treasured by Maya afficianados as well as the casual tourist to Mexico or Guatemala.

You should buy this book, or you will be sorry when all the copies get sold out. Since Professor Schele has now passed on to the Supernatural Otherworld -where she will journey along the axis mundi and through the Black Transformer-to be joined with the source of the Maya lifeforce- she won't be writing any more cool Maya books for us to read. It's a collector's item. Buy it before it's too late. FFD

A book any amateur Mayanist will cherish forever... containing many thoughtful and incredibly insightful analyses of sites and their details, both popular and obscure. One of the best books in any collection and, I think, the best in the author's very distinguished career. Buy this book!
