Texte du rabat

Brings together the research by archaeologists, archaeobotanists, plant geneticists, and a host of other specialists as they trace the history of maize, exploring the complex ways that this single plant and the peoples who domesticated it came to be inextricably entangled with one another over the past nine millennia.



Résumé
Tracing maize from its first appearance and domestication in ancient campsites and settlements in Mexico to its intercontinental journey through most of North and South America, this book tells the story of the artistic creativity, technological prowess, and social, political, and economic resilience of America's first peoples.
