About this Item

256 pages. Softcover. New book. ARCHAEOLOGY. This volume presents a collection of studies that examine from different perspectives, representing both households and site centers, local and regional political processes in northwestern Belize. Data spanning the Archaic to Early Postclassic are presented, with particular analytical focus given to the end of the Early Classic through the Late and Terminal Classic and the geopolitical tumult that defined this period. Cast in the framework of political ecology, together these studies not only shed light on specific class histories of the region. They also advance a theory for understanding the contributions of non-elites to political growth and change over time. Classic Maya Political Ecology opens a window into pre-Columbian political processes grounded in environmental productivity and a mutual interdependence that defined class relations in northwestern Belize. This volume also outlines a theoretical approach that defines commoners and elites alike as political actors, people who contributed to the long term success and adaptability of local and regional political communities and the networks that sustained them. Jon C. Lohse is director of the Center for Archaeological Studies at Texas State University-San Marcos. (Key Words: Belize, Maya Political Ecology, Jon C. Lohse, Archaeology).
