Book News Annotation:

Blackburn (anthropology and sociology, U. of British Columbia) offers a contemporary interpretation of the series of mission reports from Quebec to headquarters in Paris that are known as the Jesuit Relations. She finds them to be colonizing texts in which the Jesuits use language, imagery, and forms of knowledge to legitimize relations of inequality with the Huron and Montagnais. She also looks beyond the text to point out a large disparity between what they said and how much they actually accomplished. Distributed in the US by Cornell University Press Services.
