From the Publisher
"While there are many books on the fall of the Inca Empire, there are few that provide a general overview of Inca history and social organization. Davies's volume fills this glaring gap in the literature. . . . The book, which is written in a clear and engaging style . . . will be of value to introductory Andean students and of special importance to those who have had some exposure to Inca prehistory and now want to grapple with complex issues of source materials."
—Latin American Antiquity
"A valuable introduction and review of scholarship."
—Colonial Latin American Historical Review
"Davies . . . has a particular gift for sympathetic re-creation of the framework of existence in the four societies under review and thus conveys something of what it must have been like to have lived in them."
—Times Literary Supplement on Davies's The Ancient Kingdoms of Mexico
