"Allen's book is well documented... [T]he parallel that Allen traces between the Maoris and the American Indians is enlightening."--Natacha Gagne, Pacific Affairs "The strength of Allen's provocative book lies in its analysis of the literature that emerged during the Maori and American Indian 'renaissance' of the 1960s and early 1970s... Allen's comparative study is worth a careful read for scholars interested in the construction of indigenous identities in postcolonial situations."--James O. Gump, Pacific Historical Review "Blood Narrative, by Chadwick Allen... ,is a welcome addition to post-modern studies, steeped in postcolonial theory."--Benjamin Kracht, History: Reviews of New Books "[An] exemplary transnational project... Allen's book displays-in addition to a broad grasp of certain theories, bodies of literature and criticism, and historical records-original, independent thinking. These strengths are complemented by the clarity and coherence of his prose... This is a noteworthy book that deserves wide reading."--Stephen Tatum, Western American Literature "Blood Narrative is a valuable, wise, and thoughtful study."--Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, American Literature "Chadwick Allen has produced a complex and significant study, which contributes to the growing body of research, writing and teaching in the comparative history of Indigenous Peoples... [H]is work has created new understanding about both the meanings and contradictions of indigenous identity... This book would be profitable reading for those Australians, both indigenous and non-indigenous, who seek recognition of the basic sovereign rights enshrined in a treaty."--Roderic Lacey, Journal of Pacific History "Blood Narrative is recommended both for its localizations and its potential to spill over into adjacent fields of Indigenous study with impact."--Michael Jacklin, The Australian Journal of Anthropology Mixed review in American Ethnologist.
