This fascinating monograph employs a world system model as the basis for archaeological investigation of Russian America that relates local findings to global patterns. Author Aron Crowell examines Russian, Spanish, and American historical sources along with the archaeological evidence to uncover a preliterate culture that left no written record of its contact with European colonial powers. Crowell's particular subject is the indigenous Qikertarmiut people of Kodiak Island off the coast of Alaska. The special case of this tribe serves as a microcosm of the history of colonialism, demonstrating how early European capitalism impacted and, in some cases, destroyed indigenous societies.

Review:

`This pioneering study is well illustrated with photographs of the excavation, plans of the village, and historical illustrations of persons and the landscape. An important acquisition for academic libraries, especially where there are programs in history, anthropology, and archaeology. Upper division undergraduates and above.'
Choice, June 1998

Book Description Springer Science+Business Media, United States, 1997. Hardback. Condition: New. 1997 ed.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. History has many voices. In the words of Russian fur merchant Grigorii Shelikhov, who led the conquest of Kodiak Island, Alaska, in 1784 and sought to subjugate its indigenous Qikertarmiut population, the arrival of the Russians in their land had brought them innumerable advantages, security, and prosperity (Shelikhov 1981:121). Arsenti Aminak, a Qiker- tarmiut elder in 1851, held a different view. He recalled a Russian ship that visited the island several years before Shelikhov as a strange monster, never seen before, which we feared and whose stench made us sick. In 1784, the dead of his people lay on the beach at a place called A wauq- meaning to become numb -where hundreds had been killed by Skeli- khov s cannon and muskets (Holmberg 1985:57-59). The Russian hunters who built the Shelikhov-Golikov Company s first outpost on Kodiak Is- land, at a small cove they called Gavan Trekh Svetitelei (as commonly translated, Three Saints Harbor ), recalled their own miseries and de- spair: We .spent the winter in ceaseless labors and .suffered great shortages and real famine .Many contracted fever, scurvy, and other ills, and died (Pierce 1976:75). Eyewitness statements about what happened on Kodiak Island dur- ing the Russian conquest and early years of colonial rule are important, but rare. They represent the experiences and views of a few individuals who lived through a time of turbulent change and traumatic contact between disparate cultures. Seller Inventory # LIE9780306456695
