BOOK EXCERPT:

The updated and revised second edition of American Encounters features new essays from the vibrant field of Native American studies and the classic essays on early Native American history from the first edition. Over the past thirty years, historians, anthropologists, and other scholars have transformed our understanding of the history of North America's native people between first contact with Europeans in 1492 and the era of Indian removal in the early 19th century. This essential anthology offers comprehensive yet focused coverage on a wide range of topics, including contact, exchange, disease, religion, and warfare.

BOOK EXCERPT:

These essays (in English except for four items in German and French) provide an intercultural perspective. They deal with such diverse aspects of North American (including Quebecois) literature. The continental context also pervades treatments of novels (featuring Indian wars, sentimentalism, the West, and modern pícaros), story cycles (e.g., Atwood's), and the long poem (Kroetsch).

"American Encounters provides a narrative of the history of American art that focuses on historical encounters among diverse cultures, upon broad structural transformations such as the rise of the middle classes and the emergence of consumer and mass culture, and on the fluid conversations between "high" art and vernacular expressions. The text emphasizes the intersections among cultures and populations, as well as the exchanges, borrowings, and appropriations that have enriched and vitalized our collective cultural heritage"--Washington University Open Scholarship website, viewed February 21, 2018.
