Charles Mann has a particular vision for how and why Indians in the Americas failed to
advance in ways that Africans, Asians, and Europeans did. What are his notions on why
American agricultural, architectural, and environmental advances, many of which
predated or outpaced Old World concepts at the time, were unable to expand to all the
regions of the Americas? How did the Old World evolve into a network of technological
innovation and advancement that surpassed the Americas? How did ideas on American Indian development change over time, globally?
Charles Mann is not only interested in how American societies arrived, developed, and
evolved, but also how they adapted to the multiple environments of the Americas. How
did indigenous Americans find ways to overcome environmental obstacles? What
techniques, attitudes, or actions did indigenous Americans share? What techniques were
unique to certain areas? Why did some communities and societies thrive in the years
before 1492 while others fell apart and disbanded into new groups or the landscape? How did scholars of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries differ on their ideas of American Indian development?
