Summary: In exploring the pattern and methods of Aztec expansion, Ross Hassig acknowledges the religious motivation behind Aztec conquest but focuses more sharply on political and economic factors. Because they lacked numerical superiority, faced logistical problems presented by the terrain, and competed with agriculture for manpower, the Aztecs relied as much on threats and the image of power as on military might to subdue enemies and hold them in their orbit. Hassig describ
