Modernity And Its Other
The Encounter With North American Indians In The Eighteenth Century
de Robert Woods Sayre
Sobre o livro
Examines eighteenth-century North America through discussion of texts drawn from the period. He focuses on this unique historical moment when early capitalist civilisation (modernity) in colonial societies, especially the British, interacted closely with Indigenous communities (the "Other") before the balance of power shifted definitively toward the colonisers.
