Abstract

This collection explores the many complex ways in which identities were forged within Britain and among indigenous peoples through a process of collision and compromise. Contributions from Africa, Australia and both sides of the Atlantic deal with different aspects of these encounters - for example, "Native Americans and early modern concepts of race" and "Hunting and the politics of masculinity in Cherokee treaty-making, 1763-1775." Empire and Others provides an interesting and valuable study which will be of particular interest to postgraduate students of Colonial American history and early modern British history.
