Abstract
 
Description
How many people were there in the New World when the first Europeans arrived at the end of the fifteenth century? The question has been debated since Columbus attempted a partial census on Hispaniola in 1496, and it remains one of the great inquiries of history. This stimulating collection of essays adds much to that inquiry, while reviewing the massive and controversial literature. It will be of inestimable value, both for its own contributions and as a starting point for further research, to American historians, Latin-Americanists, anthropologists, many social scientists, and all others who have an interest in the historical demography of the Americas.
