This collection of essays focuses principally on Indian/White and Black/White relations in colonial America. While the princippal concern of the book is on the interaction of culture and races, its more specific focus is on perception and policies, based upon the mental impression whites fashioned to help understand Native American and African American and the colonial policies that evolved from these perceptions.

Review quote

Vaughan's mastery of the primary and secondary sources and secondary literature is evident....Vaughan is clearly invigorated by the debate and open to new findings. His is an important voice in the dialogue on race in America. * The North Carolina Historical Review *
