內容簡介

在北美被蓄為奴的不只是黑人,本書描述了從哥倫布時代到19世紀末20世紀初,關於數十萬計的印地安人遭白人與同種人奴役與販賣的歷史。

「Reséndez修正了我們理解北美史的盲點,並且闡明了當今的蓄奴版持續運作的機制。」
--《紐約客雜誌》

「Reséndez善於解開部族之間奴隸交易的秘密,以及北加州拓荒白人惡劣的行徑。」
--《費城詢問報》

這是一篇重要的歷史,闡述美國數以萬計的印地安人被蓄為奴的故事。

自哥倫布時代開始,印地安奴隸在大部分的美洲大陸是非法的。然而,本書作者Andrés Reséndez在這本破除假象的新書中闡明了,數世紀以來,以印地安為奴其實是公開的秘密。沒有所謂的廢奴運動來保護數以萬計遭西班牙征服者綁架並成為奴隸的印地安人,他們後來被迫落入18世紀銀礦場的"地獄之口"當中,接著又成為拓荒的摩門教徒與富有的英國白人的家奴。

Reséndez直指大規模蓄奴如何蹂躪了北美的印地安族群。作者從勇敢的傳教士、貪婪的商人、印地安俘虜與英國殖民者的證詞中提出新事證,證明了藉由美國西南方廣泛的管道,歐洲人將生意交付到印地安人手中時,同時也讓印地安人奴役印地安人的過程。

本書揭示的是美國史中佚失的關鍵歷史,過去200年努力地對抗並廢除美國黑奴,現在,該是西方國家面對一個長期以來遭到忽視的另一個族群曾經被視為奴隸的歷史了。

A landmark history — the sweeping story of the enslavement of tens of thousands of Indians across America, from the time of the conquistadors up to the early 20th century

Since the time of Columbus, Indian slavery was illegal in much of the American continent. Yet, as Andrés Reséndez illuminates in his myth-shattering The Other Slavery, it was practiced for centuries as an open secret. There was no abolitionist movement to protect the tens of thousands of natives who were kidnapped and enslaved by the conquistadors, then forced to descend into the “mouth of hell” of eighteenth-century silver mines or, later, made to serve as domestics for Mormon settlers and rich Anglos.  
 
Reséndez builds the incisive case that it was mass slavery, more than epidemics, that decimated Indian populations across North America. New evidence, including testimonies of courageous priests, rapacious merchants, Indian captives, and Anglo colonists, sheds light too on Indian enslavement of other Indians — as what started as a European business passed into the hands of indigenous operators and spread like wildfire across vast tracts of the American Southwest.  

The Other Slavery reveals nothing less than a key missing piece of American history.  For over two centuries we have fought over, abolished, and tried to come to grips with African-American slavery.  It is time for the West to confront an entirely separate, equally devastating enslavement we have long failed truly to see.
