After the Conquest: The Survival of Indigenous Patterns of Life and Belief.
Karttunen, Frances
Journal of World History, v3 n2 p239-56 Fall 1992
Addresses the question of why Mesoamerican religions and related cultures disappeared after the conquest. Argues that certain principles of social organization and behavior have survived to today. Discusses four principles among those that have always been of fundamental importance to Mesoamerican peoples: (1) cardinality; (2) duality; (3) reciprocity; and (3) propriety. (DK)
