American Indians In American History, 1870-2001

Although coverage of American Indian history has improved remarkably in the past 20 years, the role of American Indians is still downplayed in many mainstream American history courses. In-depth discussions of United States policies toward Native Americans or the reactions of Native Americans do not appear in most textbooks. This book helps to overcome these shortcomings. Designed to accompany post-Reconstruction survey courses, it will help to integrate aspects of American Indian history. Arranged according to time periods used in most textbooks, the book's seventeen essays-many written by leading scholars, several written by American Indian scholars-discuss important policy considerations as well as environmental, religious, cultural, and gender issues. Providing a good point of departure, these essays can be used in tandem with other materials to stimulate class discussion. While every aspect of American history could not be covered, each section includes an extensive list of suggested additional reading. The volume is unique in that it is the only companion reader designed to accompany college courses covering this time period. It is a book to be used by instructors who are not necessarily Native Americanists but who wish to include the history of American Indians in their survey courses.


A History Of Western Political Thought

RRP $808.99

"A History of Western Political Thought" is an energetic, engaging and lucid account of the most important political thinkers and enduring political themes of the last two and a half millennia. John McClelland traces the development and consolidation of a tradition of Western political thought from Ancient Greece to the development of the modern state, the American Enlightenment, and the rise of Liberalism. He discusses how a tradition beginning before Socrates might be said to have played itself out in the second half of the twentieth century.
McClelland's aim is to tell a complete story: his definition of politics encompasses both power wielded from above and power threatened from below; and the sustained pursuit of this theme leads him to present an original and often controversial view of the theorists of the recieved canon and to add some writers to that canon whom he feels have been unjustly neglected.

In A History of Global Consumption: 1500 - 1800, Ina Baghdiantz McCabe examines the history of consumption throughout the early modern period using a combination of chronological and thematic discussion, taking a comprehensive and wide-reaching view of a subject that has long been on the historical agenda. The title explores the topic from the rise of the collector in Renaissance Europe to the birth of consumption as a political tool in the eighteenth century.

Beginning with an overview of the history of consumption and the major theorists, such as Bourdieu, Elias and Barthes, who have shaped its development as a field, Baghdiantz McCabe approaches the subject through a clear chronological framework. Supplemented by illlustrations in every chapter and ranging in scope from an analysis of the success of American commodities such as tobacco, sugar and chocolate in Europe and Asia to a discussion of the Dutch tulip mania,A History of Global Consumption: 1500 - 1800 is the perfect guide for all students interested in the social, cultural and economic history of the early modern period.
