American nations: encounters in Indian country, 1850 to the presentUser Review - Book Verdict
Hoxie (Parading Through History: The Making of the Crow Nation in America, 1805-1935), Peter Mancall (Deadly Medicine: Indians & Alcohol in Early America), and James Merrell (history, Vassar Coll.; Into the American Woods: Negotiators on the Pennsylvania Frontier) have jointly edited this anthology of 23 articles, many of which were previously published in peer-reviewed scholarly journals. While not interrelated, these essays illuminate the experiences of different Native American groups as they have maintained their unique ethnic identities while dealing with the U.S. government. Especially enlightening is an essay by Ward Churchill titled "The Bloody Wake of Alcatraz: Political Repression and the American Indian Movement During the 1970s," which examines the history of the American Indian Movement (AIM) and its conflict with the U.S. government. This timely article helps put Leonard Peltier's controversial incarceration for the murder of two FBI agents into context. Like its companion volume, American Encounters: Natives and Newcomers from European Contact to Indian Removal, 1500-1850 (LJ 11/15/99), this work is highly recommended for public libraries and is absolutely essential for all academic libraries supporting programs in Native American studies or American history.
