From the Publisher'Marcos ... rescues women's utterances from the biased documents written by conqueror priests-chroniclers who tried to efface women's roles within the new Colonial system, through suppression and repression, psychological, social and physical. With other scholars in various fields of inquiry, the author requests thus an additional care in handling 16th-century texts and today's ethnographic information. She asks, too, for new methodologies, and a specialized kind of hermeneutical approach to study oral traditions. This book is thus a must for anyone interested in knowing how women and men generated the system for cosmos and society to efficiently work in either ancient or modern Mexico.'
