Resulting from a symposium held in November 1989 at the Smithsonian Institution and sponsored by the Office of Quincentenary Programs of the National Museum of Natural History, this volume brings together diverse viewpoints of leading international anthropologists and demographers on the patterns of populations and disease in the Americas both before and after 1492. The 25 essays range in topic from the interpretive possibilities of skeletal paleopathology, and the effects of European contact on the Chumash Indians, to the impact of disease in the 16th-century Andean world, and the 1832 inoculation program on the Missouri River.
