›››› Tzintzuntzan post-Empire's Children (1948) Bibliography


›››› This bibliography combines three bodies of data: l) my own post-Empire's Children (1948) publications dealing with Tzintzuntan, including not only works specific to the village, but also publications that draw heavily on Tzintzuntzn data, or which have been significantly affected by my Tzintzuntzan research; 2) the publications of others who have carried out research in the village during the past 50 years, particularly the works of Stanley Brandes and Robert Van Kemper; 3) other sources cited in the preceding paper, and the epilogue, "A Half-Century of Field Research in Tzintzuntzan.For those items for which there are published Spanish translations, the citation follows, enclosed in parentheses.
