Forlagets beskrivelse
The Touch of Civilization is a comparative history of the United States?and Russia during?their efforts to colonize and assimilate two indigenous groups?of people?within their national borders: the Sioux of the Great Plains and the Kazakhs of the Eurasian Steppe. In the revealing juxtaposition of these two?cases author Steven Sabol elucidates?previously unexplored connections between the state?building and colonizing projects these powers pursued in the nineteenth century.
?
This critical examination of internal colonization?a form of contiguous continental expansion, imperialism, and colonialism that incorporated indigenous lands and peoples?draws a corollary between the westward-moving American pioneer and the eastward-moving Russian peasant. Sabol examines how and why perceptions of the Sioux and Kazakhs as ostensibly uncivilized peoples and the Northern Plains and the?Kazakh Steppe as ?uninhabited? regions that ought to be settled reinforced American and Russian government sedentarization policies and land allotment programs.?In addition, he illustrates how both countries encountered problems and conflicts with local populations while pursuing their national missions of colonization, comparing the various forms of Sioux and Kazakh martial, political, social, and cultural resistance evident throughout the nineteenth century.
?
Presenting a nuanced, in-depth history and contextualizing US and Russian colonialism in a global framework, The Touch of Civilization will be of significant value to students and scholars of Russian history, American and Native American history, and the history of colonization.
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
"A critical, comparative examination of internal colonization exercised by the United States and Russia and experienced by two indigenous populations, the Sioux and the Kazakhs, to negate the tendency to isolate the study of American history, to overemphasize the uniqueness of the American development and to exalt national pride"--Provided by publisher.
