Description

For courses in Colonial American History, History of Latin America, Colonial Latin America, and American Indian History.

This text provides a comparative perspective on the impact of early European colonization on the native peoples of the Americas. It examines the character of the indigenous cultures of the Americas before European contact and then considers the impact of colonization by the Spanish, Portuguese, French, Dutch, and English as well as the creative ways in which indigenous cultures adapted to colonization. The book considers such issues as environmental change, the nature of military conflicts, the cultural and material contributions of each side to the other, the importance of economic exchanges, and the demographic transformation.
