Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Eight contributions, with an introduction and a summary by Rountree (anthropology, Old Dominion U.) examine the Powhatans of Virginia--comprising 30 Algonquian-speaking Indian tribes--and their relationships with both European and Indian "foreigners." Writing from the perspectives of physical anthropology, archaeology, history, and cultural anthropology, they reconstruct the contacts of a nonliterate, but sophisticated society--contacts marked by ethnocentrism on all sides, which led, of course, to the expected misunderstandings and misconstructions.
