Summary
"This is a study of the Maya Indians of Yucatan, Mexico, from late preconquest times through the end of Spanish colonial rules (ca. 1500-1820). It takes the form of an historical ethnography, which attempts to reconstruct the Maya world in as comprehensive a fashion as possible--by relating ecology and modes of subsistence to social forms and belief systems--and to trace changes in that world within the larger colonial context"--Preface
