Review

"An armchair travelogue through Mesoamerican prehistory."

"The photo selections of architecture and site plans give a superb cross-section of each ruin. . . . almost as good as being there."

"This extremely accessible study will be of great interest to the student of Mesoamerica and the general reader interested in uncovering the past."

From the Inside Flap

A thoroughly revised edition of the classic photographic portrayal of the major pre-Columbian ruins of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, and Honduras.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not terrific 12 April 2006
By R. LaMee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good points:

- Lot's of color photographs showing not just architecture, but art as well.

- Many different sites presented.

- Enough text (about 10-15%), but not too much.

Disappointments:

- Thoroughness is sacrificed in favor of including more sites - I would prefer more pictures of each site.

- Pictures quality is only fair to good. I was very disappointed that colors are washed out (low color saturation) even though the book is printed on heavy matte stock.

- A majority of the pictures are not aerial, though that doesn't detract much for me.

- Only recent photos - would have liked to have seen early photos of sites prior to excavation.

- Some pictures are mislabeled.

Overall, worth checking out of the library or buying used, but probably not worth purchasing new.
1.0 out of 5 stars Poor 16 Jun. 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A summary of known data; nothing new, except some photographs; no academic structure; lack of architecture and urban analysis. Poor

By James G. Ishmael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The information in this book should give cause to rethink America's ancient past. This book has many fine pictures. Great for anybody interested in Ancient Cities of the New World.
