"Power, Performance and Propaganda" takes a closer look at Toxcatl, one of the most important ceremonies in the Aztec ritual calendar. The descriptions of this feast were written by Spanish missionaries after the conquest of Mexico in the 16th century. Not surprisingly, they focused mainly on human sacrifice performed during that event. Their authors condemned Toxcatl as yet another example of Aztec barbarity and lust for blood. The following book offers a scholarly approach to the question: "What was the purpose of Toxcatl?". It presents the reader with an insightful analysis of this fascinating, multifaceted ceremony and takes into account its political, religious and social dimensions.
