Summary

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Each chapter contains one key essay plus primary historical documents that deal with issues of survival, resistance, accommodation, and adaptation, all of which illuminate the complexity and diversity of American Indian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.
