Classic Maya civilization, unrivaled in the New World for its architectural and astronomical mastery, intricate writing systems, and brilliant art forms, disintegrated some 2,000 years ago. This book examines the history of the one art form which persisted virtually intact--textiles--and provides an in-depth look at the Maya as they exist today. 175 illustrations, 145 in color. Map.
