The Other Side of the Frontier: Economic Explorations into Native American History

By Linda Barrington | Go to book overview

tory of the United States and the indigenous peoples within its borders requires substantive economic historic research into Native American experiences. Such research does exist, but opportunities for further study are unlimited. This volume provides ready examples of what is available and, by default, what is still lacking; I hope it will stimulate research to fill the void.

Describing the scope of research on the industrial revolution, Joel Mokyr wrote: "It is an ongoing project to disentangle how economic, technological, and social elements affected one another" ( 1993, 5). This imagery applies equally well to the study of Native American economic history. The economic history of Native Americans evolves with that of the United States in a web of economic, technological, and social interactions. Compared to the study of the Industrial Revolution, or its extension to North America, research on the interwoven economic histories of the United States and Native Americans is sparse. The opportunities are great for research that starts to disentangle the different strands of development in order to see how they have impacted each other. This volume includes many of the principal authors of research on Native American economic history and contains some of the seminal work in the field.
