Rezensionen
"Philip Deloria and Neal Salisbury have brought together some ofthe best scholars writing about American Indian peoples and giventhem topics that both reflect and expand the new scholarship onIndian history and culture. The volume is a virtual compass forreaders and scholars interested in American Indians." RichardWhite, Stanford University

"If you need to know where the practice of American Indianhistory has been; better yet, if you need and want to catch up withwhere it's going, you will need A Companion to American IndianHistory. Each essay, in its own right, gives an importantstylistic and substantive shove to the new writing of AmericanIndian history while it offers the latest, best word in dutifulexegetical historiography. The Companion is the bridge-building,critical, enlightened, reflexive work the editors hoped for, andmore, since its bridge-dynamiting challenges to Indian history aregraceful and graciously delivered." Rayna Green, National Museumof American History.

"Historians are exceedingly well served by this companionon Native peoples of the USA, north-western Mexico, Canada andWestern Greenland." Antiquity

"This volume testifies to the strength and comprehensiveness ofthe "Blackwell Companions to American History" series... Theselection of writers and topics is excellent, and the quality ofthe historiographical essays matches or supersedes the spate ofrecently published books that have attempted similar tasks... Theessays go beyond a mere listing of sources to intelligentlyintegrate shifts in interpretation over time and to indicateweaknesses in the existing canon of knowledge. Academicresearchers, general readers, and members of Native Americancommunities can all profit from these sophisticated essays... thisreference work deserves a place in all libraries, and it should bewidely used to spaark further debate." Choice

"I heartily endorse this anthology as a textbook for graduateand undergraduate classes, and as a refresher for anyone seriouslyinterested in Native American studies." John H. Moore, Journalof the Royal Anthropological Institute
