North American Indians have fired the imaginations of Europeans for the past five hundred years. This comprehensive, interdisciplinary collection of essays offers the extended look at the complicated, changing relationship between European and Native people., North American Indians have fired the imaginations of Europeans for the past five hundred years. The Native populations of North America have served a variety of European cultural and emotional needs, ranging from noble savage role models for Old World civilization to a more sympathetic portrayal as subjugated victims of American imperialism. This comprehensive, interdisciplinary collection of essays offers the first in-depth, extended look at the complicated, changing relationship between European and Native peoples. The contributors explore three aspects of this relationship: Why and how did the cultures and histories of Europeans enable Native peoples to become absorbed into the reality of the Old World? What happened in actual encounters between American Indian visitors and their European hosts? How did continued and increased interaction between Indians and Europeans affect established imagery and preconceptions on both sides? Christian Feest is the editor of European Review of Native American Studies and is currently a professor at the Institut fur Historische Ethnologie, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universitat. His books include Peoples of the Twilight: European Views on Native Minnesota, 1823-1862., "Indians and Europe is a handsome collection of essays, lavishly and fascinatingly illustrated, that examines the interaction between Europe and Native American Indians, from early times when the Indians were barely a credited myth, through various stages in the relationship from fascination to fear, hatred, contempt and finally--on the part of Europeans--guilt at the near genocide that was the eventual fate of so many Indian cultures. Not least of the vast study's virtues is that it gives as much attention to the Indians' view of Europe and the Europeans as to the more familiar Eurocentric picture."--History Today, Oct 1999 "A valuable and welcome collection of carefully edited essays that offer a wealth of detail, raise serious questions as to the nature of indigenous realities, and highlight the confrontation of the Western mind with the prey of its colonizing conquests."--American Indian Culture and Research Journal., Christian Feest is the editor of "European Review of Native American Studies" and is currently a professor at the Institut fur Historische Ethnologie, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universitat. His books include "Peoples of the Twilight: European Views on Native Minnesota, 1823-1862.", The author's other works include "Peoples of the Twilight: European Views on Native Minnesota, 1823-1862."
