Description - War under Heaven by Gregory Evans Dowd

Gregory Evans Dowd boldly reinterprets the causes and consequences of Pontiac's War. Where previous Anglocentric histories have ascribed this dramatic uprising of Great Lakes Indians to disputes over trade and land, this groundbreaking work traces the conflict back to status: both the lack of respect the British showed the Indians and the concern among Native American leaders about their people's sovereignty. Dowd also examines the central role played by both Indian and British cultural practices, provides deft and insightful portraits of Pontiac and his British adversaries, and offers a detailed analysis of the military and diplomatic strategies of both sides.
