While many scholars have been interested in the size of the Indian population of the Americas at the time of first contact with Europeans, this book, first published in 1982, was the first to make a thorough examination of the question. Focusing on Peru, Professor Cook estimates population size on the basis of archaeology, carrying capacity of the agricultural systems, disease mortality, depopulation ratios, and census projection. He also analyses the catastrophic population decline that resulted from contact with Europeans, and compares this experience with that of the coastal region and the Andean highlands.

Book Description:

By means of an innovative methodology, the author attempts to estimate the size of the aboriginal population of the Americas at the time of the first contact with the Europeans. He traces the catastrophic loss of over 90 percent of that population and compares the experience of coastal region with Andean highlands.
