Integrating information from archaeological sources as well as historical commentaries and research from explorers, eyewitnesses, and scholars D’Altry (anthropology, Columbia U.) provides a comprehensive picture of the Inca empire, which, at its height, was comparable in size to the Roman Empire in Europe. He looks first at the region and its cultures and politics before the rise of the empire and examines how it arose. Then he writes about its functioning rulers, administration, family structure, ideology, and economy and the reasons for its demise at the hands of the Spaniards in the 16th century. The book is amply illustrated by figures and maps. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
