Changing National Identities at the Frontier by Andres Resendez
Book DescriptionThis book explores how the diverse and fiercely independent peoples of Texas and New Mexico came to think of themselves as members of one particular national community or another in the years leading up to the Mexican-American War. Hispanics, Native Americans, and Anglo Americans made agonizing and crucial identity decisions against the backdrop of two structural transformations taking place in the region during the first half of the nineteenth century and often pulling in opposite directions. On the one hand, the Mexican government sought to bring its frontier inhabitants into the national fold by relying on administrative and patronage linkages; but on the other, Mexico's northern frontier gravitated toward the expanding American economy.

Other Slavery, Hardback (April 2016)
Since the time of Columbus, Indian slavery was illegal in much of the American continent. There was no abolitionist movement to protect the tens of thousands of natives who were kidnapped and enslaved by the conquistadors. The Other Slavery is nothing less than a key missing piece of American history, one that changes an entire national narrative.
