This concise illustrated volume recounts Tikal's rise from prehistoric obscurity to unparalleled success at the height of Maya Civilisation, as well as its spectacular collapse and abandonment. Through the many hieroglyphic inscriptions, grave gifts from tombs, and a rich architectural and artistic legacy, the book recreates the political, and social life of the city and of the Maya in general.

This is terrific by a Mayan hierglyphic expert. In-depth study for anyone interested in the Mayans.
Of interest for me were the Mayan cartoons following p.162
Which show a robust satire - humor is absolutely a human trait. We don't usually get a glimpse of it from ancient societies.
