Editorial Reviews

Review


"Scholars can be grateful to Axtell for sharing more of his thoughts with them, and to Oxford University Press for giving his essays greater circulation."--William and Mary Quarterly


"Impressive. Judiciously employing a wide variety of source materials from both sides of the cultural divide, Axetell writes with great sensitivity, humanity, and insight."--Journal of American Studies


"Will prove a welcome addition to the libraries of all ethnohistorians."--American Indian Quarterly


"After Columbus is an excellent companion volume to much of Axtell's earlier work....In a field prone to polemics, Axtell's is a voice of reason. He stands firmly in the middle between the 'traditional historians' at one extreme and scholars with 'counter-cultural tendencies' at the other....In its broad scope, its respect for peoples on both sides of the cultural divide, and its common sense, After Columbus is a valuable addition to the literature on contact."--Reviews in American History


"Focusing on a broad spectrum of ethnohistorical subjects, these 12 essays offer Axtell's insights into problems such as morality in the interpretation and writing of ethnohistory, the validity and success of the Christian mission effort among the tribes, early Indian impressions of Europeans, and the scholar's obligation to Indian people....Axtell amply demonstrates that traditional historians have consistently underestimated the impact of Native peoples on the course of early American history."--Choice
