(Pre-Columbian) Politics as Usual

kurnick-baron dust jacketIt’s here! After years of hard work, Political Strategies in Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica is in print. With contributions from leading scholars in the field, this volume explores how  leaders from the Formative to the Postclassic negotiated the challenges and contradictions of political authority. Sarah Kurnick and I are proud to have examples from all over Mesoamerica in our first edited volume. Thanks to everyone at the University Press of Colorado for making this book happen. Order it here.
