A detailed study of the Tarascans and their government, religion and economics. Situated west of the Aztecs, they were also their enemies. They eventually chose not to fight the Spanish and gradually the administration of their kingdom passed to Cortes and others. Pollard draws upon ethnohistoric documentation, ecological data, and archaeological research, including her own recent work in the region, to provide a comprehensive overview of the Tarascan state, one of the two great political powers the Spanish encountered when they arrived in Mexico in the early 16th century. Includes 23 maps and 34 photographs.
