Cycles of Conquest; The Impact of Spain, Mexico, and The United States on the Indians of the Southwest, 1533-1960.
Spicer, Edward H.
The impact of Western culture, represented by the Spanish, Mexican, and the Anglo American, on Indian cultures of the Southwest is assessed in this volume. An attempt is made to synthesize the tremendous amount of information, gathered by many investigators, on Indian cultures in relation to the question, "What are the chief ways in which Indians have responded to Western Civilization, and what has happened to their cultures as a result of contact?" Primary emphasis is on cultural change and the growth and development caused by contacts with white men. All the major Indian groups of the area are considered with regard to the major question, with sufficient detailed historical data being presented to give chronological development and historical presence.
