Publisher's Summary

The Aztec Empire did not recoil from the face of an impending doom, it struggled faithfully. Destined to emerge from humble beginnings, it grew into a highly complex devoted civilization refusing to live at the mercy of more neighboring powerful rulers. Its powerful pochteca combed the valley for luxury items while markets dotted their lands.

Inside you will find....

  • Introduction
  • How the Aztecs Are Portrayed and How Their History Survives
  • Defining Moments and Their Search to Expand and Save the World
  • Their Philosophy: Its Impact on Social Life and How It Served the Kings
  • Conclusion

Isolated from the Old World until the devastating Spanish conquest, the Aztec mācēhualtin (commoners) and nobles enhanced their positions while kings and relentless warriors dealt with the political realities of powerful dynasties and rivaling kingdoms. They developed a philosophy, an order, and a society built on loyalty, stoic honor, and sacrifice as they embraced the temporary nature of things. Investigate the era of the Fifth Sun and what defined the Aztecs and their relationship with the divine.

The first 10 minutes are barely relevant to the subject. Preachy. I don't have time for it. it's supposed to be a simple compilation of historical facts about a specific subject.
