History of the Inca Realm is a classic work of ethnohistorical research that has been both influential and provocative in the field of Andean prehistory. Maria Rostworowski uses a great variety of published and unpublished documents and secondary works by Latin American, North American, and European scholars to examine topics such as the mythical origins of the Incas, the expansion of the Inca state, the political role of women, the vast trading networks of the coastal merchants, and the causes of the disintegration of the Inca state in the face of a small force of Spaniards.
