Review "The Aztec Empire is the most extensive and historically accurate survey of the art and culture of the Aztecs and their contemporaries ever assembled outside Mexico. The exhibition and this accompanying book present the extraordinary works of art created by the Aztecs as well as by the peoples they conquered, and the cultures that preceded them in Mesoamerica." "Featured in this profusely illustrated volume are archaeological objects and works from Mexico and the United States, including jewelry, works of precious metals, and household as well as ceremonial artifacts."--Jacket.
