Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection brings together the best recent works covering over five hundred years of American Indian history. Organized chronologically, from pre-Columbian America to recent reflections on the legacy of Indian political activism in the 1960s and 1970s, the readings provide useful tools for understanding the dynamic changes within American Indian societies. Each chapter contains one key essay plus primary historical documents that deal with issues of survival, resistance, accommodation, and adaptation, all of which illuminate the complexity and diversity of American Indian experiences. In addition, Nancy Shoemaker's main historiographical introduction to the volume discusses some of the basic terminology and gives a brief overview of American Indian history. Concise introductions to each article and document, as well as further reading lists, make this an excellent resource for students, scholars, and instructors of American Indian history.

Book News Annotation:

Shoemaker (history, U. of Connecticut) has gathered seven scholarly articles on Native American history from the mid-1990s, arranged them in historical order (from ancient America, to the 19th century removal of the Cherokees along the Trail of Tears, the Indian takeover of Alcatraz), and briefly introduced and then supplemented each one with relevant historical documents. The general introduction discusses Indian historiography from its white, anthropological beginnings with Lewis Henry Morgan and Franz Boas wanting to document a static and dying culture, to "The New Indian History" which began in the 1970s—an approach viewing Indian culture as dynamic and still vital and Indian history as more complex than previously thought. The volume's strength is that it is not just a relentless historical parade of facts/events, but instead pauses to consider this history, contextualize and turn it over from multiple viewpoints, both Native American and white.
