explains how the Incas drew from millennia of cultural developments to mould a diverse land into a dynamic, powerful and yet fragile polity. From this integrated perspective, The Incas profoundly rethinks the nature of imperial formation, ideology, and social, economic, and political relations in Inca society. Book jacket.
The great empire of the Incas at its height encompassed an area of western South America comparable in size to the Roman Empire in Europe.

The Incas is the first book fully to synthesize history and archeology in a sweeping exploration of the entire empire from Chile to Ecuador. The author

This is a comprehensive, but readable, review of Inca civilization. The work is quite detailed, so take your time over its reading to not burn out. I learned so much and feel much better prepared for my trip to Peru.
