Über diesen Titel:
Rezension: "Drawing on extensive and detailed surveys of nearly 100 Mexican town centers, which were carried out by teams of volunteers led by the authors, this book challenges the Eurocentric interpretation of colonial town planning in the New World as solely influenced by European theories and traditions. The authors instead argue that the open urban spaces and associated building ensembles of early colonial Mexico were envisioned and functioned as what Sam Edgerton has termed 'Theaters of Conversions' syncretizing elements of two distinct cultural traditions in order to foster integration and acculturation." - Hispanic American Historical Review "Ancient Origins of the Mexican Plaza: From Primordial Sea to Public Space is lavishly illustrated, richly documented, and conceptually limited. The result of a dozen years of field research, the authors draw on a valuable archive of digital images, photographs, and plans of 90 town centers in Mexico... The authors present a wealth of information about Mexican plazas. Adding to their own observations and photographs, the authors include extraordinary images of early colonial towns illustrated in the Relaciones Geograficas held in the Benson Latin American Collection at the University of Texas, Austin - American Anthropologist
