About the Authors
  • This is the first major survey of research on the indigenous peoples of South America from the earliest peopling of the continent to the present since Julian Steward's Handbook of South American Indians was published half a century ago. Although this volume concentrates on continental South America, peoples in the Caribbean and lower Central America who were linguistically or culturally connected are also discussed. The volume's emphasis is on self-perceptions of the indigenous peoples of South America at various times and under differing situations.

    • First comprehensive history of native peoples living in South America to be published in fifty years
    • Includes multiple perspectives, provided by authors of different backgrounds and indigenous people's own stories
    • Emphasises indigenous people's perceptions of themselves
