In the eleventh century AD the Aztecs arrived in Mexico from the north. In less than a hundred years they developed an extraordinary civilization. Here is the strange story of that rise, and of the even swifter fall under the impact of Cotes and his followers. Dr Vaillant discusses the basic beliefs of its society in relation to government, education, and law. At the same time he captures the spirit of the age, and in one fascinating chapter takes us on a conducted tour of the great city of Tenochtitlan in the heyday of its power. Further excavation and study, and improved techniques of dating archaeological material have thrown new light on the story. This thorough revision by his wife Suzannah Vaillant has lost none of the flavour of the original, which remains the most important account of one of the great civilizations of the world.
