Disease and Discrimination

How did conflicts between European powers impact the lives and health of native communities? This chapter integrates several studies that demonstrate that conflict often results in famine, migration, and other conditions that facilitate disease. During the earliest colonial years, when Europeans pressed into the unknown wilderness of the Americas, conflicts were largely waged between those who had lived there for centuries and those who had not. Skirmishes were fought by natives to protect their kin, their provisions, and their territories. Europeans fought to gain entry to new lands and to acquire new resources. But through time the yardarms of ships from distant lands more frequently advanced.
