Beschreibung:
In this significant work, Olko reconstructs the repertory of insignia of rank and the contexts and symbolic meanings of their use, along with their original terminology, among the Nahuatl-speaking communities of Mesoamerica from the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries. In this interpretative study and handy reference, Olko engages with and builds upon extensive world-wide scholarship and skilfully illuminates this complex topic, creating a vital contribution to the fields of pre-Columbian and colonial Mexican studies. 'Insignia of Rank in the Nahua World' substantially expands and elaborates the themes of Olkos "Turquoise Diadems and Staffs of Office: Elite Costume and Insignia of Power in Aztec and Early Colonial Mexico", originally published in Poland and never released in North America.
