Editorial Reviews


"Historian David A. Chang has given this difficult, but interesting story a solid, innovative treatment. . . . This book will be a valuable addition to library collections on the era of allotment, and could be used profitably as a book for discussion in a

"Exhaustively researched, carefully organized, and effectively argued. . . .Chang has made an important contribution. . . .It will certainly challenge scholars to rethink the history of allotment in Oklahoma and beyond for years to come." --The Journal

"David. A. Chang has written one of the best books of U.S. history to appear in the last year. Highly analytical and deeply researched, it is also eminently readable and perfectly pitched to classroom use….Full of ideas and humanity, The Color o

"Chang expertly demonstrates his ability to wed issues of race, class, land, and nationhood into one concise and coherent monograph….An outstanding study….It will undoubtedly become standard reading for anyone trying to better understand the

"Chang speaks to current debates on the formation of national identity and racial construction, including that on black Indians. . . . Contributes to the understanding of the interplay among class, whiteness, and masculinity. . . . Provides a useful way o

Book Description

"There are few scholars capable of addressing all the potential axes of investigation as fully and thoroughly as Chang does. To weave Indians, African Americans, and Euro-Americans together into one story that also encompasses race, class, nation, and land is to account for the variables historians have been discussing in a piecemeal fashion for a generation or more. At once explicitly comparative and exquisitely sensitive to the connections between the units under comparison, this is the kind of work that we need more of."--Joshua A. Piker, University of Oklahoma
