About the Author:

Robert Wooster is Regents Professor of history at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. He is author or editor of ten books on the army, the West, and the Civil War, most recently Frontier Crossroads: Fort Davis and the West.

From Booklist:

More than 600 entries provide access to information about the persons, tribes, treaties, battles, places, weaponry, and concepts related to armed conflicts between Native Americans and those of European descent, for the years between 1599 and 1890 and primarily the geographic locations now within the borders of the U.S. The sharply focused, extensively cross-indexed entries, accompanied by 78 black-and-white illustrations and 36 maps, are intended to introduce the topic to students in grade nine and up. Preceding the entries are five essays, written by the editors: "American Indians Prior to 1492," "Warfare Terminology," "Armies of Empire: Colonial, State, Federal and Imperial Forces in the Indian Wars," "Wars and Warfare," and "Wars and Warfare, Another View." Appendixes include a list of tribes of North America organized by culture area (region), a chronology, and a selected bibliography. The index indicates main entries, entries with photographs or maps, and chronology entries.

The Encyclopedia of Native American Wars & Warfare complements other recent reference books by Facts On File related to Native American culture and history, including the Biographical Dictionary of American Indian History to 1900 (2001) and the Chronology of American Indian History (2001). There are few direct competitors to this title, and the limited overlap with the Encyclopedia of American Indian Wars, 1492-1890 (ABC-CLIO, 1997) encourages complementary use rather than replacement. The entries each encyclopedia has on common topics often show significant differences with respect to context, reporting, and level of detail, even though both encyclopedias generally agree on the basic facts. Given its attention to context and breadth of entries, the Encyclopedia of Native American Wars & Warfare may make a better beginning point for novice researchers and is recommended for public, high-school, and academic libraries.
