This book refers to the "demographic collapse" of the "American Indian" without mentioning genocide at all. This is flagrant erasure of history. Not only were the Native Americans intentionally infected by the colonists, they were massacred on a massive scale.
Thomas Jefferson advocated "exterminating" them. They didn't die due to their own immune systems: they died because colonists killed them on purpose for many decades. Doesn't even pretend to be balanced. Takes a rather extreme position early on and belittles and castigates any other viewpoints.
The publisher sent me an examination copy for course adoption. I've never seen a textbook as biased as this one. If you are a teacher, steer clear of this one. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web.
