A Thematic Bibliography of Ancient Maya Writing is an extensive index of published research on Maya writing. It provides a road map through the overwhelmingly large volume of literature on the subject. Those interested in Maya writing will find it an essential tool for research.
The bibliography is organized by topic to allow the scholar or student to search out specific subjects. The book is divided into nine sections: "Discovery," "Principles of Decipherment, " "Nature of Maya Writing," "Time," "History," "Supernaturals," "Objects," "Sites," and "Maya Languages and People."
The very earliest studies as well as the most recent research are included. The bibliography also offers an author index to help readers more readily access bibliographic entries.
