From the Publisher:

A vivid survey of the ancient wonders of the "new world" and the Pacific Islands--including civilizations of the Maya, Aztecs, Incas, and Native North Americans and the unique development of Japanese culture--culminating in a dramatic clash of cultures with the arrival of Europeans.

From Booklist:

Images of awesome ruins and beautiful yet powerfully eerie artifacts serve as a prelude to the fourth volume in the Illustrated History of Humankind series. The focus here shifts to the development of cultures in Mesoamerica, the Andes, Japan, the Pacific Islands, and North America, with an impressive group of scholars seizing the opportunity to present their latest findings. Overall, the very readable text pays ample attention to the indigenous people who populated these regions and to the evolution of the various civilizations. Numerous illustrations--stunning photographs of major archaeological sites, descriptive maps, and reproductions of artwork, ritual objects, and stunning crafts--enliven and enrich the survey, which concludes with a glossary of terms. Alice Joyce
