About this product
- DescriptionIn 1981, UT Press began to issue supplemental volumes to the classic sixteen-volume work, <cite>Handbook of Middle American Indians. These supplements are intended to update scholarship in various areas and to cover topics of current interest. Supplements devoted to Archaeology, Linguistics, Literatures, Ethhistory, and Epigraphy have appeared to date. In this Ethlogy supplement, anthropologists who have carried out long-term fieldwork among indigeus people review the ethgraphic literature in the various regions of Middle America and discuss the theoretical and methodological orientations that have framed the work of areal scholars over the last several decades. They examine how research agendas have developed in relationship to broader interests in the field and the ways in which the anthropology of the region has responded to the sociopolitical and ecomic policies of Mexico and Guatemala. Most importantly, they focus on the changing conditions of life of the indigeus peoples of Mesoamerica. This volume thus offers a comprehensive picture of both the indigeus populations and developments in the anthropology of the region over the last thirty years.
