Aztec Civilization
2 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This reconstruction of Aztec history looks more like pageantry than a teleological interpretation of Mayan life. It painted the past to meet the sensibilities of a new generation of middle class audiences, but also worked as historical and cultural rape of another community.
