How did Maya farmers, artisans, and rulers make a living in a tropical forest environment? In this study, Patricia McAnany tackles this question and presents the first comprehensive view of ancestral Maya economic practice. Bringing an archaeological approach to the topic, she demonstrates the vital role of ritual practice in indigenous ecologies, gendered labor, and the construction of colossal architecture. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this book situates Maya economies within contemporary social, political, and economic theories of social practice, gender, actor-networks, inalienable goods, materiality, social difference, indigenous ecologies, and strategies of state finance.

The Brazilian Amazon experienced, in the late 1830s, one of Brazil's largest peasant insurrections, known as the Cabanagem, in which rebels succeeded in controlling provincial government for more than a year. In this first book-length study in English, the rebellion is placed in the context of late colonial and early national society and economy. The Cabanagem is critical to understanding why the Amazon came to be perceived as a land without history.
