A Fuego y Sangre: Early Zapotec Imperialism in the Cuicatlán Cañada, Oaxaca

Elsa M. Redmond

In this volume, Elsa M. Redmond reconstructs the history of the Cuicatec region in Oaxaca, Mexico, from the Middle Formative period through the Lomas phase, when the Zapotec state based at Monte Albán took control, into the Trujano phase and the Spanish conquest. Redmond integrates archaeological data and sixteenth-century ethnohistoric records to inform her study of the political and social strategies of the Cuicatec region during these time periods. From 1977 to 1978, Redmond conducted an archaeological survey in this region, and she presents the results of that fieldwork here.

This book is Volume 1 of the subseries Studies in Latin American Ethnohistory & Archaeology and a companion to Irrigation and the Cuicatec Ecosystem: A Study of Agriculture and Civilization in North Central Oaxaca by Joseph W. Hopkins III (1984).
