HASH(0x97d3abd0) out of 5 stars Exception Detail in a Easy to Read Format Dec 11 2012
By Hector Cordova - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is fundamental to anyone that studies Mesoamerica. It is of particular interest if your field encompasses any of these areas: Teotihuacan, Epi-Classic, Olmec Studies -- just to mention a few. El Tajin rose after the fall of Teotihuacan and was within the sphere of Teotihuacan influence. It was also one of the dominant sites during the Epi Classic - early Post Classic era along with Xochicalco, Tula and others. El Tajin is located in Huastec territory and was part of the Olmec homelands in prior centuries. The ability to read and decipher the glyphs and murals of this site help in the study of Zuyua for those that study this concept. It is also vital for anyone interested in Mesoamerican cosmology as a whole. Koontz takes a very logical, step by step approach in explaining the concepts and interpreting the images found at the site. If you ever are fortunate to visit this site in person, please take this book along with you. It is an amazing experience.

HASH(0x97af2198) out of 5 stars Technical but informational. March 15 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A bit too academic in style, but interesting facts are included. The site of El Tajin is marvelous so this book enhanced my understanding.

HASH(0x97af6d68) out of 5 stars contextual and descriptive narrative to anchor what is otherwise obviously good research and technical accuracy March 2 2015
By Charles Goslin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It is a very detailed book that lacks a broad, contextual and descriptive narrative to anchor what is otherwise obviously good research and technical accuracy. If you are an afcionado of mesoamerican arcana, archeological detail ad nauseum...go for it. Like reading a seriously boring doctoral thesis. For hours.
