    I'm writing a review of this book for class. It is a very thoughtful book about how contact between the Indians and the English in the late 16th and early 17th century was an opportunity for each society to evaluate their own culture using the other group as a mirror.

  • Tim says:

    A reasonable compilation of accounts of early encounters, and some attempt to put them in context of each group’s perspective. Decent but not stellar narrative.

  • Malcolm says:

    This is a stunning piece of historical analysis, that I read with three hats on. The first, as a descendent of colonists who refuses to believe the simple myths and hierarchies of colonial history – the ideas of the superior Europeans and primitive indigenous peoples. More importantly, though, I've read it as a tale the exposes the fragility of Empire in that it unpacks and exposes not only the utter dependence of early European/English colonists in America on the skills, knowledge, and relati [...]

    Karen Ordahl Kupperman’s work Indians and English: Facing Off in Early America, published in 2000, seeks to dispel the narrative of inevitable mutual hostility and European conquest in her examination of the first decades of English colonization. “The key to understanding this early tentative period is, as far as possible, to sweep away our knowledge of the eventual outcome,” she argued, favoring instead and attempt to “recover the uncertainty and fear in which all sides live, as well as [...]

  • Ben says:

    Very thorough, although the subject was interesting I feel that the author reiterated many points too much. I would enjoy reading a more popularized/narrative style book on this subject although it would be difficult.

    This was a great intro to Ethno History. I found Kupperman's extensive use and variety of primary sources to lend more credence to her argument.
