Reviews
"In this extraordinarily rich and compelling book, Coll Thrush has succeeded admirably in bringing to life the half-millennium-long phenomenon of Indigenous engagement with London. A terrific work of scholarship and a stunning act of authorial invention."--Eric Hinderaker, author of The Two Hendricks: Unraveling a Mohawk Mystery--Eric Hinderaker
"This book confirms Coll Thrush's position as the best historian of place working in Native American and Indigenous studies today. Indigenous London is a major contribution to the growing scholarship of the Red Atlantic."--Jace Weaver, author of The Red Atlantic: American Indigenes and the Making of the Modern World, 1000-1927
--Jace Weaver
"In this elegantly written and wide-ranging book Coll Thrush successfully challenges the widely assumed binary between urban civilization and indigenous people. In his exciting and always illuminating tour of the indigenous presence in the metropolis of the British Empire from the 16th to the 21st century, Thrush recovers the ways in which North American, New Zealand, and Australian native peoples sought to challenge settler colonialism. This book is a must read for those interested in indigenous peoples, London and the British Empire."--Steve Pincus, author of 1688: The First Modern Revolution
--Steve Pincus
"This is a truly innovative and engaging book. It demonstrates splendidly how the presence of these visitors stimulated a great deal of curiosity and speculation, as we would expect, but also forced Londoners to see the city through their eyes."--Karen Kupperman, New York University
--Karen Kupperman

"Painstaking research complemented by readable, engaging prose."--Choice


"With this volume Thrush has certainly offered a powerful corrective to the usual geographies imagined for Indigenous people in the past, as well as a new layer to the palimpsest history of Britain's imperial capital."--Kate Fullagar, William and Mary Quarterly
"This gracefully written book somehow combines the warmth and humanity of a history written on an intimate scale with the historical breadth (five centuries and a nearly global reach) necessary to understand the larger processes at work in the lives of the people featured in Indigenous London."--James Rice, Native American and Indigenous Studies
