Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book North America's Indian Trade in European Commerce and Imagination, 1580-1850 presents the table of contents, a list of illustrations, acknowledgements, and a list of abbreviations. The book examines an ongoing European fascination with the Indian trade from the period of exploration and early colonization, to the middle years of the nineteenth century. It makes the observation that ballooning surpluses of goods, a gaining interest in venting them to Indians in America, and credit transactions allowed Indians and their relationship with Europeans to be imaginatively recreated. The book suggests some of the ways that Indian trade descriptions changed according to the rise and fall of virtues associated with commercial capital.

Keywords: colonization; European Commerce; Indian trade; North America
