MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this landmark anthology of critical essays and first-person narratives, Leavitt (Issues and Problems in Teacher Education) amplifies the often silenced voices of indigenous cultures around the globe, thus balancing the standard historical accounts of conquering forces and cultural majorities. The book is divided into five parts, covering various regions in Africa, North America, South America, Australia, and Asia. Each essay opens with editor's notes, offering details about the essay author and the original publication context. Every geographic segment closes with a first encounter chronology. An absolutely essential volume for world literature, history, and cultural studies collections." - Library Journal, Starred Review
"Although all of the accounts have been previously published, some are buried in earlier volumes or are otherwise difficult to obtain. Leavitt has provided a valuable service by bringing them together in a single, well-organized anthology...Recommended." - Choice
