As New. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. Scholarly study reopens the debate about the size of the Valley Mexico's indigenous population before the Spanish conquest and the scale and rate of its decline thereafter. The author assesses population size, based upon a computer-generated simulation of the response of the indigenous population to a variety of factors that determined its eventual collapse. Factors include the demographic structure of the population before the Spanish conquest, the epidemiological environment that accompanied the conquistadores, and the nature of the Valley of Mexico's agricultural system. 261 pp. Illustrated. Publisher's stamp on front endpaper.
