1.0 von 5 Sternen Shallow and completely biased 4. Mai 2012
Von Ernst - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this book when visiting the US hoping to learn something about the Native Americans.

Regarding the History of the Native Americans it is completely shallow. A lot of data about the different migrations (this one is the most complete section of the book), something about tools and weapons, something about the main Tribes and Chiefs, something about their languages, the places they lived in and the relation with their neighbours, something about the situation of Native Americans today regarding social and legal status.

A bit of everything but too shallow for my taste. For an overview it's not so bad. Almost nothing about beliefs and rites, by the way.

The insulting part comes when talking about the relations of the Natives and the Europeans when they first met.

The authors are really reluctant to say anything bad about how the English and the Americans later treated the Natives. There are only a few lines telling the story about the smallpox contamitated blankets and only a brief mention of the massacre Custer wanted to perpetrate... even though in the end he was the one who got massacred. For the authors, the English didn't do almost anything wrong. And if they did, the authors tell it in a pair of lines and skip to the next topic.

When reading this book one starts to think that the English arrived in America with the sole intention of giving out lollypops and cuddle toys to the Natives they might came across. It is like they hadn't killed, fooled, enslaved, exploited, almost exterminated and sent to live in reserves any Native American.

The authors have not so many problems when describing the Spaniards as soulless bloodthirsty demons who only wanted to kill helpless Natives for fun. They are portrayed as such evil beings that it is almost comical.

It seems the lies of the Black Legend about the Spaniards lives on in the minds of many...historians. But since it has been proved to be a smearing campaign of the years in which Spain was the most powerful country in the western world I thought the authors would be a bit more objective regarding that topic. Obviously they are not as objective as I hoped they would be.

As a Spaniard myself I feel insulted by the lack of objectiveness the authors show. If this book is so biased and full of trites in this regard I must doubt of the value of everything else which is presented here.

This book is useless for me.

I wouldn't reccomend it to anyone who wants an objective, critical and professionally written History book.

Don't waste your hard earned money on that. I'm sure there are far better books out there.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Native American History for Dummies 9. September 2011
Von Betty E. Huffman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Provides a quick overview of most major American Tribes, but like most English history books on Native Americans, some of the history is dead wrong. Don't depend on this book for real knowledge, but rather a cursory overview of when, who, and where some things actually happened regarding Native Americans in the past.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Native American History 12. November 2013
Von Jason Brandley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am working on writing an historical novel, this is a good source of info regarding the who, what and wheres of Native Americans.
2.0 von 5 Sternen Bland and un-Dummies Like 19. Juni 2013
Von Michael Menninger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book on N.A. History seems very high-schoolish and bland. It could certainly use a lot more graphs, maps and pictures which are rare. Descriptions and setup of N.A. History is dull and sophmoric. I lose interest almost immediately when reading a section. Wish I could return in.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Recommended, but not the definitive word 13. März 2013
Von Wayne B. Norris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I liked the contents, but found the writing a bit amateurish. For example, much more was made of things like Indian/Native American beads than a book with a title like this probably deserved. It was clearly researched, and the author - a Native American professor - is obviously an authority. I just found it a bit sugar-coated.
