Calloway Ë 0 Read & Download Although many Americans consider the establishment of the colonies as the birth of this country in fact Early America already existed long before the arrival of the Europeans From coast to coast Native Americans had created enduring cultures and the subseuent European invasion remad. Author Colin Calloway further advances his neo progressive vision of the history of the Americas in New Worlds for All Discarding traditional historical accounts of Christopher Columbus discovering the New World in 1492 Calloway asserts instead that Columbus merely facilitated the connection between the two worlds both of which were filled with peoples who had massed into their own related but yet distinctively uniue cultures each with its own language religion and customs Over time in both worlds different groups had at various times made war on each other and lived in peace worshiped different gods intermarried and established commerce and trade among themselves They developed complex trading routes connecting their settlements across great distances in both spheres In essence the author contends that beyond the Europeans obvious technological advantages in weaponry sailing and trans oceanic navigation the two worlds shared many commonalities as well Despite these similarities from the onset the two cultures looked upon each other from radically different world views which had been indelibly etched upon their sensibilities handed down and reinforced through countless generations Each tried to make sense of the seemingly strange tongue manners and habits of the other based upon their own cultural norms Thus Europeans saw the Amerindians as backward uncivilized heathens desperately in need of Christian salvation which they would get around to right after they plundered the wealth of resources the Indians lands contained which these foolish childlike creatures were virtually ignoring and utterly wasting The Amerindians by contrast for the most part viewed Europeans as yet another new tribe to be reckoned with which although powerful was composed of curious rather arrogant individuals who were weak without the great magical eualizer their guns They were incapable of taking care of themselves left to their own devices very naive to the ways of Mother Earth extremely wasteful and unappreciative of her gifts Everywhere they went disease despair waste and destruction followed Central to the premise of Calloway s work is the uite logical idea that from the moment of that first encounter between Europeans and Native Americans both of their worlds were irrevocably changed Calloway manages to pack a wealth of examples into just under two hundred pages divided into theme oriented chapters each focusing on the ideas and actions of all the parties involved regarding such varied areas as religion and ceremonies inter tribal and gender relations warfare and slavery commerce and trade disease and medicine With these areas in mind he examines and synthesizing the work of prominent pioneers of American historiography like Bernard Bailyn Frederick Jackson Turner and James Axtell for clues and examples of how this related to different groups of Amerindians who once thrived in the southwestern as well as the north and south eastern parts of North America Calloway concludes that in each of these areas both European and Indian culture absorbed and evolved elements from the other which it found beneficial while rejecting what it found too objectionable or unnecessary Those interactions between Amerindians and Europeans expounded changes which ultimately led after some three centuries of societal cultural evolution to the emergence of a uniue new species of humans the Americans Published sixteen years ago in 1997 New Worlds for All Indians Europeans and the Remaking of Early America was the eighth offering from Calloway s prolific pen coming roughly a decade after the beginning of the distinguished ethnohistorian s career He has been on the faculty of Dartmouth College for nearly a uarter century where he is a Professor of History and Native American Studies He has published than a dozen books focusing on the genre of Native American history and has served as editor on other literary projects on the topic as well All have been well received within the academy and in 2011 his lifetime of academic and literary endeavors was honored by the Western Historical Society with the American Indian History Lifetime Achievement Award This volume was one of his first offerings aimed specifically at a wider reading audience beyond the academic arena However judging from the pristine condition of the now sixteen year old library copy obtained for this review casual readers with an interest in well researched and written historical works are in rather short supply This is truly a shame because this book while sparsely illustrated is a relatively easy read that provides readers with an insightful glimpse into the creation of a new world system It is the story of just one ball of the roots of the great tree today known as globalization but a very important part of what makes us all Americans and if we don t know how we became who we are we are destined most likely to repeat and perpetuate the mistakes of the past While this is an excellent survey of relations between Whites and Indians from 1492 through the birth of the early and early years of the American republic the overview is too broad and sweeping to present a full picture of the topic necessary for advanced scholarship It does serve however as an excellent road map to a treasure trove of primary and early secondary source material for the graduate student of Native American studies
