Geography, Demography, Cartography

Paperback
This special issue of Ethnohistory focuses on the ways in which the disciplines and methods of geography, demography and cartography are relevant and revealing for ethnohistorical analyses. Articles discuss culturally distinct views of landscapes and underline the importance of such concepts for the integrated study of the past. This issue also contains a radical and devastating re-evaluation of one of the fundamental ethnohistorical texts of the Americas - Bishop Landa's Relacion de Las Cosas de Yucatan - which will change the landscape of ethnohistorical scholarship forever as this revered source is unmasked as a secondary compilation.
