The judges said of Dr Dodds Pennock's book:
'Few fields of study can present the historian with such a challenge as the world of the pre-conquest Aztecs ... [a] challenge that Caroline Dodds Pennock meets triumphantly. Her analysis of the rich but problematic evidence is unfailingly rigorous. Both theoretical and methodological sophistication, however, are worn lightly. What emerges is a vivid and convincing reconstruction of a society whose harsh view of life and death was tempered by the experience of warmth, and even joy, achieved through human relationships and the routines of everyday life.'
'An exceptional volume because of its humanising approach and attention to individual concerns,
emotions, and perspectives. This beautifully written book is recommended for a
wide readership, from undergraduate students to accomplished Mesoamerican scholars.'
- Lisa Overholtzer, Bulletin of Latin American Research
'Genderspecialists and students of all levels will find worthwhile [Dodds Pennock's] search for the intimate as revealed by sources that downplay the personal and affective, rendered as itis in graceful, accessible prose. - Susan Kellogg, Hispanic American Historical Review
'This study, beautifully written and organized, is a fresh approach to both the problems of understanding Aztec human sacrifice, a problem as old as the first European viewers of this society in the sixteenth century, and of characterizing Aztec gender relations, which was introduced as a field of study in the latter half of the twentieth century. With exhaustive research Caroline Dodds Pennock ties together these two strains of enquiry in a tour-de-force argument that resolves many seeming contradictions and allows the modern Westerner to enter Aztec society with less apprehension. While making sense of Aztec thought, even more valuable is her humanization of the Aztecs through the publication of the few texts thatreveal intimate and individual aspects of behaviour and interpretation of well-known formulaic pronouncements as moving expressions of human emotion. This last is a difficult feat to accomplish for a culture that is usually presented as overwhelmingly communal, public, and unfeeling.' - Emily Umberger, Arizona State University, USA
' This highly accessible dissertation-turned-manuscript will be of value to a wide audience...This beautifully written book is recommended for a wide readership.' - Anglia
