Amerindians and Europeans in Northeastern North America, 1600-64
The first book to pay serious attention to the European economic and political factors which promoted colonization, this book argues that the prime determinant was the uneven development of agricultural systems in western Europe.
The essays in this volume illuminate key conditions for autonomy and development: the definition and redefinition of national territories as cultural orders clash and mix; control of resource bases upon which northern economies depend; and renewal and reworking of cultural identity.
In this illuminating history of Montreal, readers will discover the links between identity, place, and historical moment as they meet vagrant women, sailors in port, unemployed men of the Great Depression, elite families, shopkeepers, reformers, notaries, and social workers.
