    This book's big strength is its thoroughness. It covers everything from what the Aztecs soaked their corn in before cooking it to how they would inaugurate a new tlatoani, as well as political history from mythical times until after the Conquest. "Aztec" here means all the people who moved into the Valley of Mexico area from north of Mesoamerica, as opposed to just the Mexica of Tenochtitlan and Tlatelolco.

It covers everything from what the Aztecs soaked their corn in before cooking it to how they would inaugurate a new tlatoani, as well as political history from mythical times until after the Conquest. "Aztec" here means all the people who moved into the Valley of Mexico area from north of Mesoamerica, as opposed to just the Mexica of Tenochtitlan and Tlatelolco. The book is still mostly Mexica-focused, though. The first chapter sets the Aztec in the larger context of Mesoamerica and has hard-to-find information about some of the earlier civilizations in the area. The whole book could be more organized and clearly written. Still, it's a great resource and I'll definitely consider reading others in the series if I start reading about another pre-modern civilization. Probably what I'll remember most is the myth of the wanderings of the Mexica as their god Huitzilopochtli led them to Tenochtitlan, which reminds me a lot of the Roman myth of the wanderings of Aeneas.

Aguilar-Moreno breaks Aztec society into neat, easily digested components each with their own designated section that can either be read individually or as a whole with little fuss. Aquilar-Moreno keeps his language accessible and distills archaeological work down to what is most essential to placing a particular site, artifact, or model into its larger historical context which helps keep readers engaged.

    Amazingly exhaustive book covering almost all facets of life and culture in the world of the Aztecs. Fascinating, copiously illustrated (only wish some were in color).
