Tweedy Reviews Reséndez, "The Other Slavery"

Catching up on our JOTWELL reading, we see that Anne Tweedy has posted an admiring review of The Other Slavery: The Uncovered Story of Indian Enslavement in America (Mariner Books, 2016), by Andrés Reséndez (University of California, Davis). Here's the first paragraph:
The Other Slavery: The Uncovered Story of Indian Enslavement in America is a devastating encyclopedic account of slavery in the Spanish colonial New World. For me, the ultimate effect was a surprising combination of a renewed sense of the intractability of old problems like racism and slavery and an acute sense of having awoken to a new historical reality that I previously knew next to nothing about.
Tweedy goes on to praise The Other Slavery as "indispensable reading for professors in the U.S. who teach federal Indian law" and recommends Chapter One, in particular, to "everyone who teaches some aspect of New World history at any level."
