Summary "A multi-disciplinary approach reinterprets the Mixtec codices and argues that they present a Mixtec history of the political fragmentation that occurred in Oaxaca following Monte Albán's decline. Through archaeological survey and informant interviews, authors correlate specific postclassic archaeological sites with the codices. Additional research needed to substantiate correlations"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
