"A very important book, full of challenging insights, fascinating information, and with a strong message." Boyce Richardson, author of People of Terra Nullius: Betrayal & Rebirth in Aboriginal Canada and Strangers Devour the Land "Hall has a wide-ranging grasp of the literature dealing with the philosophical and ideological underpinnings of both European and Indian that led to the formation of the Canadian and American societies of today. This study is both thorough and carefully worked out. I know of no other works that have synthesized such a range of thought on the establishment of the British empire in the Americas, its interweaving with indigenous politics, and the consequent rise of the United States and Canada." Olive Dickason, author of Canada's First Nations: A History of Founding Peoples from Earliest Times
