Editorial Reviews

Review


"It should be required reading for all students of Indian and white relations."--Journal of American Ethnic History


"Important and ambitious....Interesting, broad, and engaging. It promises an understanding of a relatively unexamined, evocative, and both tragic and heroic province of American ethnic diversity and political mobilization."--American Journal of Sociology


"An excellent work that adroitly handles an exceedingly complex subject."--C. Matthew Snipp, University of Wisconsin-Madison


"A fascinating overview of early American Indian relations, specifically, how the tribes lost land, independence, and power, but--by playing one official body off another--were able to maintain some degree of freedom."--Booklist


"Well written and persuasively argued, this book will be of great interest to students and scholars in the social sciences and to discerning general readers."--Choice

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
if i threw the world love out like it has no sacredness to it i would use that term. This is some deep and critical ethnography. If the reader comes form the (in)security of the centrists paradigm and the "godliness" and the righteous ire of religiosity, these truths will be self evident to the delusions and propaganda that 'mericans have been fed. Because the text deals with what is genocide it complicates things like, "freedom," representative 'demokkkracy,' and subjugated populations. It is heavy when reading and able to process (i.e. think) deeply to how, and what is been/being done to Indigenous populations--culminating at a grave cost. the text is very accessible, but i am unsure if it is suitable to a consuming culture that maintains a superficial (pop-culture) status quo / bougie enslavement.

Wonderful history of history of American reactions to the "Indian problem" and the ways American Indians defied expectations and maintained political distinctiveness despite and sometimes because of U.S. efforts to destroy it. Very readable, relatively short, historical and sociological overview
