Indigenous Peoples of North America : A Concise Anthropological Overview, Paperback / softback Book

Indigenous Peoples of North America : A Concise Anthropological Overview Paperback / softback


Most books dealing with North American Indigenous peoples are exhaustive in coverage.

They provide in-depth discussion of various culture areas which, while valuable, sometimes means that the big picture context is lost.

This book offers a corrective to that trend by providing a concise, thematic overview of the key issues facing Indigenous peoples in North America, from prehistory to the present.

It integrates a culture area analysis within a thematic approach, covering archaeology, traditional lifeways, the colonial era, and contemporary Indigenous culture.

Muckle also explores the history of the relationship between Indigenous peoples and anthropologists with rigor and honesty.

The result is a remarkably comprehensive book that provides a strong grounding for understanding Indigenous cultures in North America.
