Summary

The Mesoamerican world system was characterized by diverse kinds of interdependencies since the Preclassic to the Postclassic periods. Interdependencies generate sources of power such as economic and ideological which affect social structures well beyond cultural boundaries. This paper contends that in a highly complex exchange network that dominated the Mesoamerican landscape power was negotiated at the local and supralocal networks, and resulted in interdependencies of various levels and among various systemic actors.
