Abstract

Rescuing the Seven Years' War era from the shadows of the American Revolution and moving away from the political focus that dominates Iroquois studies, this work offers something substantially new by exploring Iroquois experience in largely economic and cultural terms. 

""Imperial Entanglements" gets to the heart of the social and cultural transformations in Iroquoia in the later eighteenth century. Its emphasis on complex adjustments and slow transformations represents a quantum leap forward from the simpler, more straightforward notions of dependency, conquest, or removal. The result is a book that captures the essential paradox of cultural contact at the same time that it respects and honors the people it describes."--Eric Hinderaker
