by Patricia A. McAnany


She questions the monolithic view of the Classic Maya as a society of kings and peasants and instead describes the Classic Period as an era of dynamic tension between the older organizational structures of the lineages and the newer, more centralized and extractive forces of divine kingship.

Ancestor veneration in the Maya region traditionally was associated with divine kingship and royal genealogies.
