The American Indian and the Problem of History

Edited by Calvin Martin

The problem of history for North American Indians is that historical consciousness has traditionally been irrelevant to them. In this book, anthropologists, historians, and Native and non-Native Americans question whether formal Western history has the philosophical power and imagination to enable scholars to write about Indian societies who performed in the Western vision of history only through coercion.
