Publisher's Comments
"The Other Slavery is nothing short of an epic recalibration of American history, one that's long overdue...In addition to his skills as a historian and an investigator, R sendez is a skilled storyteller with a truly remarkable subject. This is historical nonfiction at its most important and most necessary."--Literary Hub, 20 Best Works of Nonfiction of the Decade​

"Long-awaited and important . . . No other book before has so thoroughly related the broad history of Indian slavery in the Americas."--San Francisco Chronicle

"A necessary work . . . Res ndez's] reportage will likely surprise you."--NPR

"One of the most profound contributions to North American history."--Los Angeles Times

Since the time of Columbus, Indian slavery was illegal in much of the American continent. Yet, as Andr s Res ndez 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. Res ndez builds the incisive case that it was mass slavery--more than epidemics--that decimated Indian populations across North America. Through riveting new evidence, including testimonies of courageous priests, rapacious merchants, and Indian captives, 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.

"Beautifully written . . . A tour de force."--Chronicle of Higher Education
