Over the course of a century until the late 1700s, the British Crown, the Iroquois, and other Aboriginal groups of eastern North America developed a system of alliances and treaties that came to be known collectively as the Covenant Chain. In An Ethic of Mutual Respect, Bruce Morito offers a philosophical interrogation of the predominant current reading of the historical record regarding the Covenant Chain.

Until the late 1700s, relations between the British Crown and Canadian Native Americans, and in particular the Iroquois, proceeded through a series of negotiations known as the Covenant Chain. In this densely researched book, Morito (philosophy, Athabasca U.) explores this meeting of cultures through a moral lens, while thoroughly relying on the historical record. A lengthy bibliography appears at the end which includes six archival documents held at the Library and Archives Canada (LAC). Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
