Review quote

ADVANCE PRAISE "Unlike the Tupian and Cariban people of South America, little is known about the Arawakan diaspora as a cultural system. A tour de force of scholarship by individuals at the very cutting edge of their subdiscipline, Comparative Arawakan Histories provides a myriad of new insights into native life and breaks long-held stereotypes about relationships among language, culture, and ethos." -- Norman Whitten, professor of anthropology and director of the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaignshow more
