Summary The history of the Americas before European arrival center around a major paradox: some of the world’s most fertile agricultural land was never brought into cultivation by its native inhabitants. The development of the societies of the Americas in many ways hinges upon the crucial elements lacking for a more technologically developed society. Nevertheless, this should not blind us to the achievements in statecraft and social organization of Native American societies.
