From the Publisher"The Madrid Codex offers a new and nuanced understanding of one of the few surviving Maya hieroglyphic books, a porthole into the ancient Maya mind and a poignant reminder of how much was in a world now lost. [It is] a barrage of scholarship from leading scholars in everything from iconography to archaeoastronomy. . . . The Madrid Codex, on the basis of the impressive scholarship in every chapter of this book, now takes its place as a crucial document of this cultural ferment and fusion."
"I cannot think of another interdisciplinary study in Mesoamerican cultures that has produced such innovative results."
- Davíd Carrasco, Harvard University
"The exciting new approaches to interpreting the codices will make this a volume essential for those studying the Postclassic Maya."
- Susan Milbrath, University of Florida
