The Law of Nations and the New World

Framsida
University of Alberta, 1993 - 316 sidor
The Law of Nations and the New World explores the ideology of European colonial expansion, describing and evaluating the legal, theological and philosophical justifications of both colonizers and those who opposed them from two very different points of view. The authors provide fascinating insights into the thinking that helped to create the "aboriginal problems" faced by so many in the world today.

Om författaren (1993)

When Olive Dickason discovered that she had Metis ancestry, she began to wonder about Canada before Europeans. As she learned more about that too-often ignored past, her country took on a whole new aspect. Exploring its history became a personal quest, all the more focussed because the heritage of her mixed ancestry had been reinforced during her early years by living on the land in Manitoba's north, hunting and trapping. She ended her career a professor of History at the University of Alberta.
