9780345393500: Native American History: A Chronology of a Culture's Vast Achievements and Their Links to World Events

A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY:
A CHRONOLOGICAL ACCOUNT OF ITS PLACE ON THE WORLD STAGE.
Native American History is a breakthrough reference guide, the first book of its kind to recognize and explore the rich, unfolding experiences of the indigenous American peoples as they evolved against a global backdrop. This fascinating historical narrative, presented in an illuminating and thought-provoking time-line format, sheds light on such events as:
* The construction of pyramids--not only on the banks of the Nile but also on the banks of the Mississippi
* The development of agriculture in both Mesopotamia and Mexico
* The European discovery of a continent already inhabited by some 50 million people
* The Native American influence on the ideas of the European Renaissance
* The unacknowledged advancements in science and medicine created by the civilizations of the new world
* Western Expansion and its impact on Native American land and traditions
* The key contributions Native Americans brought to the Allied victory of World War II
And much more!
This invaluable history takes an important first step toward a true understanding of the depth, breadth, and scope of a long-neglected aspect of our heritage.

From the Publisher:

This book is a great resource for students and history buffs alike. It stands out from other books of its kind for several reasons:

First, it's a lot more accessible than lengthy historical 'tomes' that take hours to search through just to find a quick fact or piece of information. Because of the chronological way that it's organized and the concise, yet information-packed entries, it's easy to find exactly what you're looking for right off the bat.

Second, this book puts Native American history in context with other key events going on in the world, which gives the reader perspective on how events on both sides of the Atlantic influenced each other.

Lastly, it's totally comprehensive in scope. Whereas many books treat the subject with an ethnocentric approach and only cover events taking place after the Europeans set foot on American soil, this one goes all the way back to the very origins of these indigenous people around 28,000 B.C.--- truly ancient history! And it also covers events right up to modern times, highlighting the issues and concerns faced by today's Native Americans.

-------J. Rendon, Editorial Assistant
