This was the textbook we used for my Maya, Aztec, Inca archaeology class. We only used it for the Maya and Aztec portions of the class. I found the text incredibly detailed, too much so for an undergraduate class. The text was extremely dense and it took me probably 3-4 times longer to read my assignments than most books I read. It was beautifully made with a lot of photographs. The layout/organization was also quite confusing.

An encyclopedia-like work covering virtually every Mesoamerican culture. This is the standard textbook for all university classes on the subject, but it serves most effectively as a reference book. The comprehensive bibliography will provide you with an index for the entire field of Mesoamerican studies.
