The Other Slavery

The Uncovered Story of Indian Enslavement in America

A landmark history - the sweeping story of the enslavement of tens of thousands of Indians across America, from the time of the conquistadors up to the early 20th century Since the time of Columbus, Indian slavery was illegal in much of the American continent. Yet, as Andrés Reséndez illuminates in his myth-shattering The Other Slavery , it was practiced for centuries as an open secret. There was no abolitionist movement to protect the tens of thousands of natives who were kidnapped and enslaved by the conquistadors, then forced to descend into the "mouth of hell" of eighteenth-century silver mines or, later, made to serve as domestics for Mormon settlers and rich Anglos. Reséndez builds the incisive case that it was mass slavery, more than epidemics, that decimated Indian populations across North America. New evidence, including testimonies of courageous priests, rapacious merchants, Indian captives, and Anglo colonists, sheds light too on Indian enslavement of other Indians - as what started as a European business passed into the hands of indigenous operators and spread like wildfire across vast tracts of the American Southwest. The Other Slavery reveals nothing less than a key missing piece of American history. For over two centuries we have fought over, abolished, and tried to come to grips with African-American slavery. It is time for the West to confront an entirely separate, equally devastating enslavement we have long failed truly to see.
Rezension
Praise for A LAND SO STRANGE: "Once you start this book, it's nearly impossible to put it down."- The Washington Post Book World "Reséndez creates a gripping narrative of one of the most amazing survival stories of all time."- Library Journal (Starred review) "Reséndez...shows how Cortez, de Soto and other would-be conquistadors schemed for their kingdoms in the New World like investors jockeying for IPOs."- Wall Street Journal "Resendez's story is so riveting you'll wonder why so many history books ignore it."- Entertainment Weekly "Told from an intriguing and original perspective, Reséndez's narrative is a marvelous addition to the corpus of survival and adventure literature." - Publishers Weekly "[I]t is Reséndez's clever rewriting of his ordeal-as a survivor's tale-that is most memorable."- Texas Monthly "Resendez tells this gripping story with zeal...It is impossible not to be swept along by his enthusiasm."- Financial Times (U.K.) "[W]ell-informed, well-written, well-researched and well-suited to providing a new perspective on one of the oldest of American stories."- Dallas Morning News
