This is a fantastic general overview of Mesoamerican archaeology: accurate, comprehensive (I mean REALLY comprehensive), clearly written, and brimming with illustrations.

I used this book to study for my comprehensive exams in archaeology. I highly recommend it for that purpose, or as a guide to some of the regions that all too often get left out of general-audience books on Mesoamerica: West Mexico, Veracruz and the Huasteca, etc.

This is a Thames and Hudson book and it feels like one--readers familiar with Fagan's "Ancient North America" or Coe's twin volumes, "Mexico" and "The Maya," can expect the same standards of publication and the same quantity of beautifully-reproduced line drawings, maps, and photographs. Toby Evans's book is better than Coe's, though: not only is it a single synthetic volume, but her writing is clearer and she does not use the text to grind axes or name-check her former graduate students.

The text benefits from having only a small dose of theory, which when it does show up is mostly of the cultural ecology variety one would expect from an author with Toby Evans's Penn State affiliation.

Throughout the book, there are special 1-2 page sections on all kinds of topics: pottery, exchange systems, birth and childhood among the Aztecs, chinampa agriculture, etc. These are especially useful for general readers--somebody planning a trip to Mexico, for instance--looking for some background on the details of life in prehistory, and not just what-happened-when.

Susan Toby Evans' Ancient Mexico and Central America is excellent. She uses clear language and good organization to develop a structure study of the archeology of Mesoamerica. She includes many effective examples, with explanations. Understanding the past through archeology is always best viewed as an incomplete picture, with a constant need to incorporate new evidence into re-examining our current concepts and patterns. This text does a good job of presenting current thinking, while revealing that many parts of the puzzle are missing.

This book was really fascinating and full of great information. I am an archaeologist and found this book to be super interesting. I also passed it on to a friend who felt the same. I think this book would be great for a course or for someone like me who just wants to enjoy learning. Well written for the laymen too.

The book as a read is great if you like to learn about Mesoamerica and history of how certain civilations lived and thrived. The book in the condition that I bought it in was great. Couldn't really ask for a better copy and returning it was a breeze

I bought this book NEW... and I’m typing this as I study for my Sociology 207 midterm — I just took the book out of the saran wrapping, and noticed half of Chapter 2 looks to be a horse’s lunch.

This text is alright. Pictures and graphs are ok, but the timelines are a little difficult to follow sometimes. It would be better if they were organized according to geographical areas then into time periods.
I paid extra for express shipping and it took a week, plus a weekend to arrive.

Pretty dry material. Very informative but is presented in a way that is not exactly entertaining.
Very interesting
