Pp. 334. 8vo, blue cloth, black titles to front and spine."The essays in this book present the inte­grated application of prehistori c, ethno­historic, and ethnographic data centering on the interpretation ofpast and present peoples residing in Greater Meso­america. These groups, a t some time in their existence, had much in common: a corn-, bean-, and squash-farming base; permanent villages with plazas; public religious structures; and well-developed ceremonialism involving astronomical-ceremonial concepts including calendrics.

Each essay offers a methodological approach or the documentation leading to a better understanding of such aspects of Greater Mesoamerica as climate, cultural history and sociopolitical organization."
