About this product
- DescriptionCultures in Conflict addresses the broad pattern of events that framed this conflict's causes, the intercultural dynamics of its conduct, and its profound impact on subsequent events-most tably the American Revolution and a protracted Anglo-Indian struggle for continental control. Warren R. Hofstra has gathered the best of contemporary scholarship on the war (1754-1763) and its social and cultural history. The authors examine the viewpoints of British and French imperial authorities, the issues motivating Indian nations in the Ohio Valley, the matter of why and how French colonists fought, the diplomatic and social world of Iroquois Indians, and the responses of British colonists to the conflict. The result of these efforts is a dynamic historical approach in which cultural context provides a rationale for the well-established military and political narrative of the Seven Years' War.
- Author BiographyWarren R. Hofstra is Stewart Bell Professor of American History at Shenandoah University. Of his numerous publications, he is the author of The Planting of New Virginia: Shenandoah Valley Landscapes, 1700-1800 and the coeditor of George Washington and the Virginia Back Country.
