He is the author of The Guardian of the Law: Authority and Identity in James Fenimore Cooper(1991).

'From an Africanist point of view the book's strengths lie rather in the fact that it assembles not only the original text, ... but also two contemporary essays published in the North American Review the following year. The book is enjoyable to read, the preface includes useful background information, and the index is helpful.' The Journal of African History
