The book presents, for the first time, a rich body of empirical data on the chronology of the Tiwanaku state; the nature of the social and political relationships between the city and its hinterland; the form and meaning of its monumental and elite architecture; and the texture of everyday life in its residential quarters. Kolata concludes this monumental study with a chapter that places the organization and historical dynamics of Tiwanaku society into a broader theoretical framework that has great salience for archaeological interpretation throughout the Americas.
