Summary
"The Maya: Voices in Stone deals with the history of this civilization, mainly during the Classic period, through the study of its hieroglyphic texts, a study that in recent years has seen great progress and led to surprising findings ... The chapters that make up this book are the result of dedicated research by specialists in Maya civilization, who nevertheless present their findings in a way that is accessible to all those who are interested in the history of this culture ... This is an indispensable book for anybody who is interested in stepping into the complex world of the ancient Maya and getting to know better their artistic accomplishments, their poltical organization, their funerary rites, their writing, their war practices, their architecture, their everyday life, and many other aspects of this great civilization"--Page 13
