Like its predecessor, the second edition of Philip Week's highly popular volume illuminates the problems caused by westward expansion in the nineteenth century, as battle after battle was fought, treaty after treaty was broken. Weeks discusses the three possible resolutions undertaken in varying degrees by the U.S. government –separation, concentration, and Americanization– as he guides the reader through the significant changes in Indian-White relations during this pivotal time.Informed by the latest scholarship and expanded to consider the entire scope of U.S-Indian relations in the nineteenth century, the second edition of the engaging Farewell, My Nation provides important supplemental reading for the U.S history survey and essential text for courses in American Indian studies.
