Both European and Native American viewpoints appear throughout this volume. An introductory essay, "The World in 1492," places the subject in a global context; "Discovery" deals with the background to Columbus's epic first voyage and narrates the journey itself; "Invasion" examines the immediate consequences of Columbus's voyage for the invaders and the invaded; and "Encounter" considers the idea of Old and New Worlds and the reaction of each hemisphere's peoples to each other.
