Ciudad y territorio en los Andes: Contribuciones a la historia del urbanismo prehispánico

by José Canziani Amico

The range of forms of settlement and territorial management employed by the societies of the central Andes from the time of the first hunter-gatherers to the Inka empire are presented in this volume, providing exceptional documentation of the urban and architectural patrimony of ancient Peru. The volume's main objective is to present a general view of the origins, evolution, and development of the phenomenon of urbanism and its most significant architectural expressions. At the same time, the diversity of the urban development in ancient Peru is examined, in order to compare its manifestations in different regions. In Spanish.
