THE MAYA. Ninth, revised and expanded edition. Michael D. Coe and Stephen Houston. Thames and Hudson Inc., New York, 2015. Original edition published 1966. 314 pp. with 213 ills. (28 col.). 24 x 16 cm. LC 2014-951100 ISBN 9780500291887 In English.
Publisher's description: The Maya has long been established as the best, most readable introduction to the New World's greatest ancient civilization. Coe and Houston update this classic by distilling the latest scholarship for the general reader and student. This new edition incorporates the most recent archaeological and epigraphic research, which continues to proceed at a fast pace. Among the finest new discoveries are spectacular stucco sculptures at El Zotz and Holmul, which reveal surprising aspects of Maya royalty and the founding of dynasties. Dramatic refinements in our understanding of the pace of developments of the Maya civilization have led scholars to perceive a pattern of rapid bursts of building and political formation. Other finds include the discovery of the earliest known occupant of the region, the Hoyo Negro girl, recovered from an underwater cavern in the Yucatan peninsula, along with new evidence for the first architecture at Ceibal.
