The Oxford Handbook of American Indian History

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The Oxford Handbook of American Indian History explores major topics and themes in the Native American past and helps readers to identify major resources for further study and research. The book presents the story of the indigenous peoples who lived—and live—in the territory that became the United States. It describes the major aspects of the historical change that occurred over the past 500 years, with chapters by leading experts, both Native and non-Native, that focus on significant moments of upheaval and change, place-based histories of major centers of indigenous occupation, and overviews of major aspects of Indian community and national life. The Handbook not only substitutes what is “correct” for what is “wrong,” it also offers readers stimulating ideas and guides to the scholarly resources that will enable them to pursue these topics more deeply.
