When Peru fell to the conquistadores in 1532, the Inca realm was one of the largest on Earth, matching the grandeur of Ming China and the Ottoman Empire. Moseley (archaeology and paleoenvironmental studies, U. of Florida) traces the evolutionary history of the civilizations that preceded and gave rise to the success of the Incas, and provides insights of contemporary Andean peoples into the cultures of their ancestors. Some 225 (b&w) illustrations: maps, line drawings, some exceptionally lovely photographs. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
