New England Frontier, 3rd Edition
Lieferbar innerhalb von 2-3 Tagen
BeschreibungIn contrast to most accounts of Puritan-Indian relations, New England Frontier argues that the first two generations of Puritan settlers were neither generally hostile toward their Indian neighbors nor indifferent to their territorial rights. Rather, American Puritans-especially their political and religious leaders-sought peaceful and equitable relations as the first step in molding the Indians into neo-Englishmen.
With a new introduction, this third edition affords the reader a clear, balanced overview of a complex and sensitive area of American history.
