Fine. This fourth volume of the Supplement is devoted to colonial ethnohistory. Four of the eleven chapters review research and ethnohistorical resources for Guatemala, South Yucatan, North Yucatan, and Oaxaca, areas that received less attention than the central Mexican area in the original Guide to Ethnohistorical Sources. A fine hardcover copy; no dust jacket, as issued. As new in the original shrinkwrap.
The supplement to Ethnohistory volume of the Handbook of Middle American Indians is a good supplement. It contains 7 well writte articles dealing each with a particular topic in Mesoamerican Ethnohistory and presenting the sources that exist to the study of that topic.
Particularly useful I found Carmacks article about the ethnohistory of colonial guatemala. And Susan Kelloggs article about kinship and social organization in early colonial Tenochtitlan.
Being a supplement it is rather fragmentary f nature and does not try to achieve any kind of comprehensiveness in its scope. But as a collection of individual articles about mesoamerican ethnohistory it is quite good.
