About the Author

Dean Snow is professor and head of anthropology at the Pennsylvania State University. His previous books include The Archaeology of North America (1979) and The Archaeology of North American Indians (1989).


"In this informative and highly readable study, Snow has produced an impressive synthesis of Iroquois history from its antecedents in Northeastern Archaic cultures to the present. The text blends archaeological, historical and oral traditions into a tapestry of the significant role the Iroquois have played, and continue to play, in American society." R. L. Haan, Choice "There is no better introduction to the history and culture of the people. The book confirms Snow's reputation as one of North America's leading historical anthropologists." Bruce G. Trigger, Professor of Anthropology, McGill University "Here finally is an accurate, readable, general book on the complex prehistory, history, and culture of the Iroquois. Such a work could only be produced by an author deeply involved in recent research on these topics. For years to come it will surely be the source of first resort on these important peoples of Eastern North America." William C. Sturtevant, Curator of North American Ethnology, and General Editor, Handbook of North American Indians, Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution "While he contributes fresh and significant analysis of their early, precolonial history and of Iroquois material culture - insights based on his important archaeological investigations - Snow falls well short of providing the "vivid and moving history" that his book jacket advertises. Although designed for a general audience, the book reads too often like a dull, technical research report... Dean Snow's The Iroquois ... succeeds in providing brief and insightful analysis of changing Iroquois culture and experience." The Journal of American History
