Scholars see the Incas as a people who adopted a very successful, alternative approach to some of civilization’s greatest challenges. They offer proof that engineering and social skills can be independently developed in an isolated and challenging environment. Exciting new information about the Incas appears every year as scholars publish their research. Those seeking more information on the Inca can consult my book The Incas: New Perspectives. In it, you will find an extensive list of resources for further study, including a detailed bibliography, a list of scholarly organizations that deal with Inca scholarship, specialized libraries, museum collections, and annual research symposia.
