Summary "The myths and beliefs of the great Precolumbian civilizations of Mesoamerica have baffled and fascinated outsiders ever since the Spanish Conquest. Yet, until now, no single-volume introduction has existed to act as a guide to this labyrinthine symbolic world. In 'The gods and symbols of ancient Mexico and the Maya nearly 300 entries...describe the main gods and symboles of the Olmecs, Zapotecs, Maya, Teotihuacanos, Mixtecs, Toltecs and Aztecs. Topics range from jaguar and jester gods to reptile eye and rubber, from creation accounts of Mesoamerican history and relition, while a substantial bibliographical survey directs the reader to original sources and recent discussions. Dictionary entries are illustrated with photogrpahs and commissioned line drawings...."
