A series of brilliant meditations on the ways in which Europeans represented non-European peoples and claimed to take possession of their lands during the Age of Discovery. "A marvellous book. It is also a compelling and a powerful one. Nothing so original has ever been written on European responses to 'The wonder of the New World.'"--Anthony Pagden, Times Literary Supplement "By far the most intellectually gripping and penetrating discussion of the relationship between intruders and natives is provided by Stephen Greenblatt's Marvelous Possessions."--Simon Schama, The New Republic "For the most engaging and illuminating perspective of all, read Marvelous Possessions."--Laura Shapiro, Newsweek
