When writing about another culture, it's especially important to guard against what anthropologists call ethnocentricity. Unfortunately, this book is loaded with ethnocentric and sensationalist scenarios. It's not really clear what the author's intentions are, but the book rips one cultural act out of context and paints the Aztec as a violent, bloodthirsty group. This kind of writing simply spreads prejudice.
