About This Book

En este innovador trabajo de ciencia, historia y arqueología, Mann altera radicalmente nuestra visión de las Américas antes de la llegada de Colón. Al contrario de lo que muchos estadounidenses aprenden en la escuela, los indios precolombinos no se establecieron escasamente en un desierto virgen, más bien había un gran número de indios que moldearon e influenciaron activamente la tierra a su alrededor. La asombrosa capital azteca de Tenochtitlán tenía agua corriente y calles impecablemente limpias y era más grande que cualquier ciudad europea contemporánea. Las culturas mexicanas crearon maíz en un proceso de mejoramiento especializado que se considera la primera hazaña de ingeniería genética del hombre. De hecho, los indios estaban diseñando y manipulando su mundo de una manera que solo ahora estamos comenzando a entender. Con una mirada desafiante y sorprendente a un mundo rico y fascinante que creíamos conocer, Mann desvela los métodos empleados para llegar a estas nuevas visiones de la América precolombina y el modo en que estas afectan a nuestra concepción de la historia y a nuestra comprensión del medio ambiente.
