Review:

A fresh interpretation [of]... how indigenous societies succeeded in keeping foreign powers at a distance.

(American Historical Review)

The great strength... is its engagement with ethno-historical approaches and its uses of historical documentation to establish the cultural dynamic and relationship of the various historical actors.

(American Historical Association)

Ignacio Gallup-Diaz's incisive, theoretically sophisticated, and absorbing [study]... advances Isthmian ethnohistory by a whole order of magnitude.

(James Howe Ethnohistory)
