“Farewell, My Nation” is an insightful and accessible consideration of the complex and often tragic relationships between American Indians, white Americans, and the U.S. government throughout the nineteenth century, as the government struggled with social and political questions about how to treat America’s indigenous population.The third edition of this widely used text has been entirely rewritten in light of new scholarship and in order to incorporate additional primary source materials. Philip Weeks artfully guides readers through the significant changes in Indian-U.S. relations during this pivotal time, outlining the three principal policies undertaken in varying degrees by the U.S. government – Separation, Concentration, and Americanization – and interrogating their respective effectives and repercussions. Offering detailed descriptions, chronology, and analysis of the Plains Wars supported by supplementary maps and illustrations, the new edition of this bestselling text will continue to be a valuable supplement to U.S. History survey courses and essential reading for anyone interested in better understanding the political roots of the relationship between the U.S. government and America’s first peoples.
