'I am delighted to see an historian treating indigenous peoples as active players in global history, not mere footnotes to the story of European colonialism. Coates surveys the past, present, and future of indigenous peoples, giving them full credit for the initial exploration and peopling of the world.' - Dr John H. Bodley, Washington State University
