Newly expanded, the second edition of American Encounters provides the most comprehensive, up-to-date collection of scholarship on the Native American experience from European contact through the Removal Era. Retaining the hallmark essays from the celebrated first edition, the second edition contains thirteen new essays, emphasizing the most recent, noteworthy areas of inquiry, including gender relations, slavery and captivity, and the effects of Christianity on the course of native history. With each essay prefaced by helpful headnotes that highlight key concepts and draw connections among the essays, plus an expansive 'Further Readings' section, the second edition of American Encounters is an indispensable volume for both professors and students of early American history.

Review:

"Lift the calumet for American Encounters! In recent decades, scholarship on Native American history has grown steadily in richness, depth, and stature. This expanded second edition underscores the robust state and bright future of our young and challenging field." -- Peter H. Wood, coeditor of Powhatan's Mantle: Indians in the Colonial Southeast

"The second edition of American Encounters combines classic essays in American Indian history with articles reflecting fresh research and new directions. Peter Mancall and James Merrell have compiled a remarkable collection of scholarship that provides both broad coverage and rich examples." -- Colin G. Calloway, author of One Vast Winter Count: The Native American West Before Lewis and Clark

"This is an excellent collection of essays focusing upon primary issues in Native American history from European contact through the early nineteenth century. Written by leading scholars, these essays should stimulate student discussions, and they will be welcomed by instructors of Colonial, Early National, and Native American history." -- R. David Edmunds, coauthor of The People: A History of Native America
