BOOK DESCRIPTION
Olmeca-Xicallanca, 'People from the Land of Rubber, People from the Land of Canoes' - the Nahuatl name of these ethnic groups invokes the hot, alluvial coastal plains of Veracruz, Tabasco, and Campeche (Mexico). For almost a century studying the ethnohistoric records on the Olmeca-Xicallanca, scholars have sought answers to the questions of 'who?', 'what?', 'why?', 'when?', and 'where?' These questions have been by no means easy to answer - this present volume of contributions puts forward a series of answers and possible solutions.
