Aztecs: Epoch of Social Revolution


Aztecs: Epoch of Social Revolution


Philip Dossick returns with a magnificent new historical study illustrating the humanity, science, and savagery of the Aztec nation. Aztecs: Epoch of Social Revolution takes us into a world we thought we knew, but now will never seem the same again.

Drawn from original research, Aztecs starkly illuminates their magnificent achievements – along with the social injustice and corrupting nature of power following their conquest.

Whatever vague and misty memories the rest of the world may have of the Aztecs, they were past masters of war; science; agriculture; religion; art; money; family; ritual sacrifice; law, and female subjugation. One of the most brilliant and contradictory people the world has ever known, all seen here through vivid snapshots in time.
