From the Publisher"Michael Smith is widely recognized as one of the few scholars whose work on Aztec society has creatively combined both archaeological and ethnohistoric methods. This research experience bears fruit in his revised edition of The Aztecs, an authoritative scholarly work that incorporates the results of the most recent research, but which, at the same time, is written in a style that makes it an ideal textbook for college courses."
–Richard E. Blanton, Professor of Anthropology, Purdue University
"Smith uses evidence from Aztec archaeology, ranging from the Templo Mayor to rural farmsteads, to complement the traditional picture based on chronicles and art history. The strength of this book is his synthesis of the social archaeology of everyday Aztec life established by recent excavations."
–Norman Hammond, Professor of Archaeology, Boston University
