The ninth edition of CULTURE AND VALUES: A SURVEY OF THE HUMANITIES introduces students to the history of humankind through the lens of the humanities -- language and literature, art and architecture, music, philosophy, and religion -- from the dawn of civilization to the contemporary world. CULTURE AND VALUES encourages students to place their own backgrounds and beliefs in context and consider how understanding both their own and other heritages contributes to becoming a citizen of the world in the 21st century. Coauthor Lois Fichner-Rathus continues to bring her pedagogical expertise, clear conversational style, and love of teaching to this beautifully written and illustrated book. New and revised features encourage students to draw comparisons and connections as well as engage their critical thinking skills. Chapter previews, timelines, glossaries, and “Big Picture” reviews provide consistent pedagogical support throughout the text to help students master the material.

Since its violent dissolution in 1521, the Aztec Empire of Mexico has continually intrigued us. Recent discoveries resulting from the excavation of the Templo Mayor in the heart of Mexico City have taught us even more about this fascinating culture. The increasing recognition that the achievements of Mesoamerican civilizations were among the most sophisticated of the ancient world has led to a demand for introductions to the basic methods and theories of scholars working throughout the region. Handbook to Life in the Aztec World gathers the results from recent archaeological discoveries and scholarly research into a single accessible volume. Organized thematically, the handbook covers all aspects of life in the Aztec world: Mesoamerican civilizations and Aztec archeology; evolution of Aztec civilization; geography of the Aztec world; society and government; religion, cosmology, and mythology; funerary beliefs and customs; Aztec art; Aztec architecture; Nahuatl literature; the calendar, astronomy, and mathematics; economy, industry, and trade; daily life; the Aztec after conquest and today. Each chapter includes an extensive bibliography, and more than 165 original line drawings, photographs, and maps complement the text. Handbook to Life in the Aztec World provides all the essential information required by anyone interested in Aztec history or culture.
