Establishing Exceptionalism : Historiography and the Colonial Americas Hardback

Edited by Amy Turner Bushnell

Part of the An Expanding World: The European Impact on World History, 1450 to 1800 series


Since the 1950s historians of the colonial era in North, South and Central America have extended the frontiers of basic general knowledge enormously; this rich historiographical tradition has generated robust methodological discussions about how to study the European encounter in the light of the experience of the indigenous peoples of the Americas.

By bringing together major research reviews by a series of leading scholars, this volume makes it possible to compare directly approaches relating to colonial North America, Brazil, the Spanish borderlands, and the Caribbean.
