Title: Slavery and the Evolution of Cherokee Society, 1540 - 1866
Description: Knoxville: The University of Tennesse Press, 1981. Second Printing. Hardcover. 14.5x22cm. "Slavery was practiced among North American Indians long before Europeans arrived on these shores, bringing their own version of this "peculiar institution." Unlike the European institution, however, Native American slavery was a function of warfare among tribes, replenishment of population lost through intertribal conflict or disease, and establishment and preservation of tribal standards of behavior. American Indians had little use, in pre-colonial times, for forced labor - the primary purpose of slavery among Eurropeans." Reddish-brown cloth, gilt title in brown panel on spine, red speckling to top of page block, very light spotting to other edges, content fine. Negligible dent top of rear board. Jacket slightly sunned at base of spine, spotted on reverse.. Very Good to Near Fine .
