Reviews

"An essential volume, not only for American archaeologists and historians, but for all scholars interested in the complex interplay of disease and colonialism in global history. Highlighting human agency, Beyond Germs offers compelling new analysis and haunting conclusions."-Christina Snyder, author of Slavery in Indian Country: The Changing Face of Captivity in Early America

"This edited volume represents a long overdue reevaluation of a central issue in American archaeology, history, and anthropology-the evidence and implications of catastrophic population declines among indigenous peoples in the New World."-Michael Wilcox, author of The Pueblo Revolt and the Mythology of Conquest: An Indigenous Archaeology of Contact

"An excellent addition to a growing literature that challenges the 'virgin soil' hypothesis and shows its wide exaggeration."-Choice
