Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled The Mixtec Pictorial Manuscripts: Time, Agency and Memory in Ancient Mexico contains the table of contents, list of illustrations, and preface. The book is a guide to the scholarly interpretation of those pictorial chronicles, to read the images and to understand their cultural and political background. Different themes appear prominently in these pre-conquest records. On the one hand there is the genealogical register of rulers, on the other, there are more dramatic accounts of their acts in war and ritual. Each codex offers its own specific selection of historical data, in accordance with the viewpoints of its community of origin and the interests of the dynasty that ruled there.
