In The Columbia Guide to American Indians of the Southeast, Theda Perdue (Cherokee Women) and Michael D. Green (The Creeks), University of North Carolina professors of, respectively, history and American studies, track the various Southeastern peoples from the pre-Columbian period of societal development through the invasion by Europeans, the colonial era, the exile of the ""Five Civilized Tribes"" to Oklahoma and the experience of those who stayed in the Southeast. Taking a decidedly more conventional, less postmodern approach than its counterpart on Asian America (see below), this volume examines not only the history but also the methodologies, attitudes and assumptions common to the historical study of American Indians.
