DESCRIPTION:
"The former politician and international authority on Mexican archeology and society, Jacques Soustelle, presents a vivid account of the Aztecs, those fierce, honourable, death-obsessed, profoundly religious people, from their savage days through their swift rise to a life of exquisite splendour in a city filled with 'things unseen, nor even dreamed.'
"He shows them to have been a people we can understand and sympathise with, even in the darkest symbolism of their blood-drenched worship; and he shows what the Aztecs might have become. His account pinpoints them in the moment of their history when they seemed to be on their way to even greater achievements - but the end of their civilisation was already night and advancing towards them from the Gulf of Mexico in the shape of Cortes who landed on March 4th, 1519."
