"Contextual in approch, this text draws on socio-economic and political studies as well as histories of religion, science, literature, and popular culture, and explores the diverse, conflicted history of American art and architecture. Thematically interrelating the visual arts to other material artifacts and cultural practices, the text examines how artists and architects produced artwork that visually expressed various social and political values."--Publisher's website.

The updated and revised second edition of American Encounters features new essays from the vibrant field of Native American studies and the classic essays on early Native American history from the first edition. Over the past thirty years, historians, anthropologists, and other scholars have transformed our understanding of the history of North America's native people between first contact with Europeans in 1492 and the era of Indian removal in the early 19th century. This essential anthology offers comprehensive yet focused coverage on a wide range of topics, including contact, exchange, disease, religion, and warfare.

These essays (in English except for four items in German and French) provide an intercultural perspective. They deal with such diverse aspects of North American (including Quebecois) literature. The continental context also pervades treatments of novels (featuring Indian wars, sentimentalism, the West, and modern pícaros), story cycles (e.g., Atwood's), and the long poem (Kroetsch).
