Cloth, $34.95.) With Black Slaves, Indian Masters, Barbara Krauthamer joins a small yet dedicated group of scholars who have examined the historical intersections between the lives of Native Americans and people of African descent. In her work, Krauthamer is especially interested in highlighting how Choctaws and Chickasaws exploited the labor of people of African descent and developed a legal code that replicated the racial hierarchy of the southern United States. She argues that the enslavement and the mere presence of people of African descent forced Choctaws and Chickasaws to reimagine and renegotiate their ideas about gender, citizenship, and the economy. Krauthamer stresses that scholars must understand slavery, emancipation, and the freedpeople's battle for citizenship in the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations in order to comprehend more fully southern history and U.S. history.
