    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Mesoamerica; Archaeology; World-Systems theory; World-Systems analysis; Nested Networks; West Mexico; Central Mexico; Early Classic; Epiclassic; Early Postclassic;

    Abstract : As world-systems theory came to the fore in archaeology during the 1980s and 1990s, it became evident that the analysis of pre-capitalist core/periphery relations required modifications of this theory for its further use in the discipline. As a result, the comparative approach for world-systems analysis (Chase-Dunn and Hall 1997) discerned four interaction networks that defined pre-capitalist world-systems. READ MORE
