Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: While this book is about history and prehistory, its subject is not of just academic interest but also of practical and political importance. The history of interactions among disparate peoples is what shaped the modern world through conquest, epidemics, and genocide. These collisions created reverberations that have still not died down after many centuries, and that are actively continuing in some of the world's most troubled areas today.
