Treaties and Treaty Making in American Indian History

Colin G. Calloway

  • Combines a readable and comprehensive overview of treaty making and how it changed over time in the East, South, and Western US over the centuries.
  • Emphasizes the human dimension of treaty making by focusing on the individuals who participated, their agendas, and their experiences.
  • Examines the multi-cultural diplomacy, political theater, and contingency of treaty making, rather than legal analysis.
  • Links this history with contemporary Indian legal cases.
