*** Ein faszinierendes Bild der Kulturen Amerikas vor der europäischen Invasion - Band 16 der Neuen Fischer Weltgeschichte *** Für die Europäer, die um 1500 nach Amerika gelangten, war es eine unbekannte und deshalb „Neue Welt“. Tatsächlich verfügte der Kontinent zu diesem Zeitpunkt bereits über eine Jahrtausende zurückreichende Geschichte. Es gab Jäger-und Sammler-Gesellschaften neben komplexen Häuptlingstümern und imperialen Herrschaftsformen, die zusammen eine faszinierende Vielfalt bildeten. Gestützt auf neueste Forschungen schildern die Altamerikanistinnen Antje Gunsenheimer und Ute Schüren politische, wirtschaftliche, soziale und kulturelle Entwicklungen vor der europäischen Entdeckung und Eroberung. Die »Neue Fischer Weltgeschichte« ist die erste umfassende Universalgeschichte des 21. Jahrhunderts. Ihr stringentes Konzept setzt Maßstäbe, die Lesbarkeit ihrer Darstellungen erfüllt höchste Ansprüche. Die 21-bändige Reihe wird – wie ihre legendäre Vorgängerin – Standardwerk auf Jahre hin sein: in Schule, Studium, Weiterbildung, für alle wissenshungrigen Leserinnen und Leser.

When the Maya kings of Tikal dedicated their first carved monuments in the third century A.D., inaugurating the Classic period of Maya history that lasted for six centuries and saw the rise of such famous cities as Palenque, Copan and Yaxchilan, Maya civilization was already nearly a millennium old. Its first cities, such as Nakbe and El Mirador, had some of the largest temples ever raised in Prehispanic America, while others such as Cival showed even earlier evidence of complex rituals. The reality of this Preclassic Maya civilization has been documented by scholars over the past three decades: what had been seen as an age of simple village farming, belatedly responding to the stimulus of more advanced peoples in highland Mesoamerica, is now know to have been the period when the Maya made themselves into one of the New World's most innovative societies. This book discusses the most recent advances in our knowledge of the Preclassic Maya and the emergence of their rainforest civilization, with new data on settlement, political organization, architecture, iconography and epigraphy supporting a contemporary theoretical perspective that challenges prior assumptions.

This study explores how and why people have made and modified images and other cultural material from pre-history into the 21st century. By juxtaposing objects and places usually considered in isolation, provocative questions are raised about our understandings of cross-cultural differences and the value of representational objects. The book examines themes such as violence, punishment, memory and intentionality, and breaks new ground by including contributions from archaeologists, curators, and museum conservators as well as from historians of art, literature and religious studies.

Zum Buch Wissenschaftler haben erst in den vergangenen 30 Jahren die politische Geschichte der Maya und ihre Religion mit den oft blutigen Ritualen entschlüsselt. Nichts mehr von der angeblich friedlichen und beschaulichen Geschichte dieser Indianer, wie sie die frühere Forschung hat glauben machen wollen, hat Bestand. Die Einzelschicksale der Herrscher mit Kriegsberichten, Totenfeiern und schmerzhafter Selbstkasteiung sprechen eine ganz andere Sprache; diese Biographien sind heute bis in kleine Einzelheiten durchleuchtet und erforscht. Im Mittelpunkt des Buches steht die politische und kulturelle Entwicklung der Maya und die Darstellung der Dynastien der bedeutenden Stadtstaaten von Tikal, Yaxchilán, Copán und Palenque anhand der bildlichen und hieroglyphenschriftlichen Quellen.
