Savagism and civility : Indians and Englishmen in Colonial Virginia by Bernard W Sheehan( Book )

12 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: When the English settlers arrived in Virginia in 1607 they carried with them a fully developed mythology about native Indian cultures. This mythology was built around the body of English writing about America that began to appear in the 1550s, prior to any significant contact between the English and the native groups, and was founded upon the assumption of the savagism of the Indian and the civility of European culture. Professor Sheehan argues that English commitment to this myth was at the root of the violence that broke out almost immediately between the settlers and the Indians. On the one hand, the Indians were seen as noble savages, free from and innocent of the deficiencies of European society. But as ignoble savages they were seen as immature, even bestial, lacking the civilising and ordering social structure that characterised European culture. Whichever perspective was adopted, this mythology was a product of the white man's world, developed without accurate information about Indian culture. This mythology justified both the exploitation that came to characterise settler-native relations and the inevitability of the violence that culminated in the massacre of 1622
Origin of the American Revolution: 1759-1766 by Bernhard Knollenberg( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book looks at the conflict between England and the Colonists from 1759 to 1766 and the conditions that made the colonial break with England inevitable. The book also looks at the imperial history, in that it views the American Revolution within the context of the first British Empire. In this context, the author views the movement toward independence as the failure of the British to solve the problem of empire

Growth of the American Revolution: 1766-1775 by Bernhard Knollenberg( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his two volumes on the Revolution, Knollenberg provides a basic narrative of events, with extensive citations to the sources and a thorough discussion of the historiography. He concentrates on the political and constitutional clash between Parliament and the colonies that led to the Revolution. Social, economic, and intellectual history enter the story where needed, but Knollenberg was essentially a political historian. Although steeped in the sources and scrupulous about the facts, he wrote whig history. His sympathies lay with the Americans. He believed that the British ministries were responsible for the crumbling of the empire and that the Americans represented the cause of liberty."--Jacket

Land and Liberty The Ordinances of the 1780s by Bernard W Sheehan( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Constitution established the broad legal frame for the U.S. political order; the ordinances provided the indispensable means for the expansion of that order across the continent. The first effort at organizing the northwest occurred in 1784. Written by Thomas Jefferson, the Ordinance of 1784 defined the stages through which territories should pass to statehood, made membership in the confederation perpetual, outlawed slavery, and required that state governments should be republican. The Land Ordinance of 1785 solved the problem of the orderly distribution of land. The Northwest Ordinance, enacted by Congress on July 13, 1787, contained machinery for state making and the Articles of Compact. Provisions assuring freedom of religion, trial by jury, habeas corpus, security of property and contract, proportional representation, public support of education, and the exclusion of slavery from the northwest in the territorial stage were included in the Articles of Compact. The ordinance required that "utmost good faith" should be shown toward the Indians. Their property was not be taken without their consent, and laws were to be passed to prevent injustices and to preserve the peace. (SM)
