DEYO, Chief Engineer For construction purposes the road was divided into sub-sections, and sub-contracts were let which included excavation, construction and re-construction of sub-surface structures, support of surface railway tracks and abutting buildings, erection of steel (underground and viaduct), masonry work and tunnel work under the rivers; also the plastering and painting of the inside of tunnel walls and restoration of street surface.

In recent decades, scholars have increasingly turned to agency or actor-based models to explain the origins of social and political inequality.
A number of project members deserve recognition for their diligence, stimulating conversation, and friendship: Terry Powis, Jim Cordon, Norbert Stanchly, Bobby Hohmann, Jim Aimers, Cassandra Bill, Gyles Iannone, Ran-ju Song, Mercedes Velasco, Julian Vinuales, David Iquaz, Josalyn Ferguson, Tina Christensen, David Lee, Charles Golden, Ruth Dickau, and Carmen Arendt.
The Cahal Pech figurines and several ceramic motifs (specifically, Figure 6a-c, g, j) are redrawn from earlier illustrations by Ruth Dickau and Sean Goldsmith. At the University of British Columbia the input of Michael Blake and Richard Pearson was instrumental.

A number of other people commented on and improved various aspects of this work—with or without knowing it—through lengthy discussions, including Warren Hill, John Clark, Don Forsyth, and Richard Hansen.Although it is not known whether the initial occupants of these settlements were indigenous peoples or colonists from neighboring regions, once settled, intra- and inter-regional contact was frequent, presumably directed by hereditary privileged leaders who also organized public works projects such as the recently discovered late Middle Formative ceremonial architecture and colossal stone monuments of Nakbe, Guatemala (Hansen 1991).This paper examines when the process of political power and persuasion began in the central Maya Lowlands, its basis, and its possible connection to long-distance contact.The scope of this book does not permit an enumeration of all the sub-contractors who have done work on the Rapid Transit Railroad. Terry & Tench Construction Company (Terry & Tench Company), Sub-sections 1O, 12, and 15, Steel Erection (Viaducts), Brook Avenue to Bronx Park, 125th Street to 133d Street, and Hillside Avenue to Bailey Avenue. The following list, however, includes the sub-contractors for all the more important parts of the construction and equipment of the road. ii T A B L E OF CONTENTS Abstract ii List o f Figures iv List o f Tables v Acknowledgements vi INTRODUCTION 1 INTER-REGIONAL INTERACTION, S Y M B O L EMULATION, A N D SOCIO-POLITICAL E V O L U T I O N 6 INTER-REGIONAL INTERACTION IN E A R L Y M E S O A M E R I C A : T H E QUESTION OF O L M E C I N F L U E N C E The Olmec Style: Definition and Geographic Distribution Olmec Cultural Influence and Socio-Political Evolution Beyond the G u l f Coast Olmec "Heartland": Current Perspectives and Expectations 15 E A R L Y OCCUPATION IN T H E SOUTHERN M A Y A L O W L A N D S Cultural Remains Preceding 900 B .
