"Trade, Land, Power reveals an accretion of powerful concerns that gripped Native Americans and Europeans in early America: trade, power, land, and—gradually—race and racism. With a strong eye for both broad patterns and local contingencies, Richter grounds his provocative arguments in thorough research and presents them in energetic and crystalline prose."—Gregory Dowd, University of Michigan
