"The volume's subject matter ranges from physical characteristics and pathology, to settletnent styles and subsistence patterns, to an exploration of the intentions of the Powhatans, and Europeans toward one another and the ways in which those intentions were enacted. "All people can make observations about strangers, consider their own positions and interests, and draw conclusions on the basis of both, acting upon those conclusions thereafter," writes Rountree; and indeed, Powhatan Foreign Relations offers a convincing argument for viewing both Indians and Europeans as logical, sophisticated, and ethnocentric peoples who often misconstrued each other's actions and motivations."--BOOK JACKET.
