From the Publisher
"This volume is a landmark not only for furthering our understanding of the social and political dynamics of people engaged in the practice of coping with each other and the cosmos, but also because it demonstrates the kinds of methods that are critical to use in constructing believable narratives about the organization of ancient cultures."
--Peter E. Siegel, Montclair State University
“The volume brings new perspectives to the study of Greater Antillean sites usually lumped under the term ‘ceremonial centers’ despite their significant differences. The essays show definitively that ceremonial centers with ball courts had a long history before Spanish colonizers described them, and reveal something about the nature of indigenous political and symbolic organization. Highly recommended.”—CHOICE
