Riassunto: While Europe was buried in the Dark Ages, the Maya were producing astonishing sculpture, stelae and wall murals, as well as building magnificent temples, tombs and ball courts. This extraordinary volume pairs the leading Maya scholar and one of the world's finest photographers of ancient sites to trace the rise and fall of Mayan civilization through its great royal cities. From El Mirador to the cities of the Maya Renaissance and finally to Chichen Itza, where the 700-year flowering of the Mayan people came to a halt, the riveting history of powerful dynasties, political intrigues and a flourishing culture is illuminated through new research and evocative photographs. A new reading of artifacts, reliefs, murals, maps and other archaeological evidence allows Coe to untangle the complex sequence of internecine ritual warfare that fatally weakened the late Maya era. Documented with specially commissioned maps and plans based on the latest research, Royal Cities of the Ancient Maya will be irresistible to everyone from the casual visitor to Pre-Columbian experts.

Recensione: While nothing beats actually seeing such awe-inspiring exhibits, the catalogue is a good second best as well as providing a wealth of information about these works of art, and how they relate to one another. --Current World Archaeology

Coe is well known as a writer with the highest standards of clarity of style, and his rich text is a delight to read. The book is remarkable for cramming a breadth of up-to-date information plus 141 illustrations into 256 pages ... an excellent introduction to Maya history ... unquestionably a substantive and visual achievement. --Antiquity

A beautifully shot, largely pictorial book. --British Museum Magazine

Descrizione libro Thames & Hudson, 2012. 1-82. Condizione: New. From the 3rd to the 13th centuries, while Europe was deep in the Dark Ages, the Maya of Central America were creating astonishing buildings and sculptures, and charting the movements of the stars. This magnificent volume pairs an absorbing, authoritative history of their rise and fall, political intrigues and armed conflicts, with stunning photos of their surviving legacy, including the magnificent temples at Uxmal, Tikal, Palenque and Chichén Itzá, where their final flowering was extinguished by the Toltecs.
