Pressestimmen"Tiya Miles and Sharon Patricia Holland have brought together precision history, evocative criticism, and wrenching memoir and fiction to offer a compelling picture of the meeting grounds where black and Indian lives intertwine. So much more than a decentering of whiteness, this collection truly opens up new and exciting terrain."--Philip J. Deloria, author of Indians in Unexpected Places "This collection is an important extension of a vital topic--historical and contemporary cultural and political relationships between Indian and African peoples--fully into the realm of African diaspora studies."--James F. Brooks, editor of Confounding the Color Line: The Indian-Black Experience in North America "Crossing Waters, Crossing Worlds addresses an extremely important nexus in ethnic studies and cultural studies and demonstrates the indispensable contributions of relational and comparative study."--George Lipsitz, author of American Studies in a Moment of Danger
