Editorial Reviews


The greatest strength of this volume is its breadth, especially with regard to diversity of tribe, historical periods, types of illness, and disciplinary emphases....This volume will surely be of interest to those who would like a sample of the health issues plaguing American Indians from colonization and into the present day. (Lori L. Jervis, (University of Colorado Health Sciences Center) Journal Of Nervous and Mental Disease)

This volume presents timely, authoritative, and chilling accounts of disease, death, and sociocultural devastation in Native American and Alaskan communities over the past 200 years. (E. Wellin, (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee) CHOICE)
