Tribe, Race, History examines American Indian communities in southern New England between the Revolution and Reconstruction, when Indians lived in the region's socioeconomic margins, moved between semiautonomous communities and towns, and intermarried extensively with blacks and whites. Drawing from a wealth of primary documentation, Daniel R. Mandell centers his study on ethnic boundaries, particularly how those boundaries were constructed, perceived, and crossed. He analyzes connections and distinctions between Indians and their non-Indian neighbors with regard to labor, landholding, government, and religion; examines how emerging romantic depictions of Indians (living and dead) helped shape a unique New England identity; and looks closely at the causes and results of tribal termination in the region after the Civil War. Shedding new light on regional developments in class, race, and culture, this groundbreaking study is the first to consider all Native Americans throughout southern New England.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Outstanding work... The book is filled with gems... Highly recommended. * Choice *
Mandell has made a very valuable contribution to our understanding of Native American history in a period long overlooked. -- Jenny Pulsipher * American Historical Review *
A carefully crafted, well-researched book... This review does not do justice to this rich account of the complex interactions of race, ethnicity, class, and gender in the survival of native peoples. -- Thomas D. Hall * Journal of American History *
Mandell's superb book on a long-neglected subject should affect the way the larger narrative of this era of American history is written. -- Rachel Wheeler * Journal of Interdisciplinary History *
A wide-ranging, intricately argued, and thoroughly researched book. It is well written and historiographically significant, and Mandell's nineteen-page essay on the source materials a the end of the volume is a boon for scholars. Overall, Mandell has produced an outstanding addition to the field of American Indian history in New England. -- Christopher J. Bilodeau * Journal of American Ethnic History *
Consummate and exemplary researcher, Daniel Mandell has once again filled some significant gaps in our collective knowledge on the history of New England Native Americans... Very useful to the growing number of historians of this genre for generations to come. It will be a catalyst for many vital discussions and hopefully provoke some very important new research and writing. -- George Price * H-SHEAR, H-Net Reviews *
This is a book that every scholar of Native Americans should own. The research is deep and thorough. The book makes excellent reading for a senior or honors class or a graduate class. The citations to sources are invaluable * Connecticut History *
An impressive, timely and thoroughly researched piece of scholarship. * Historical Journal of Massachusetts *
Mandell carefully reconstructs what the historical records tell us about how these communities adapted to the environments of their non-Native neighbors and states while maintaining regional ties withother Native communities... His detailed recording of these tribes and individuals shows that they did not disappear but were ignored when they no longer fit the new paradigm of 'Indian' shared by most Americans. * Massachusetts Historical Review *
An ambitious book. -- D. Elliotte Draegor * Journal of Social History *
Reveals the complex and hitherto poorly understood internal dynamics at play within these communities... an innovative work of cultural history. * New England Quarterly *
The work will become the starting point for any serious research on New England Native Americans in the nineteenth century. Well-grounded in current historiography, it will probe equally helpful in undergraduate and graduate courses by providing necessary counterpoint to the experiences of the Native Americans in other regions during the era while supplying a useful and readable commentary on American society and culture from a minority perspective. -- Brian D. Carroll * New England Quarterly *
