A comprehensive chronicle of the resistance by Indigenous peoples in North and South America, which limited and shaped the forms and extent of colonialism.
Publisher's Description: The history of the colonization of the Americas by Europeans is often portrayed as a mutually beneficial process, in which "civilization" was brought to the Natives, who in return shared their land and cultures. A more critical history might present it as a genocide in which Indigenous peoples were helpless victims, overwhelmed and awed by European military power. In reality, neither of these views is correct.
