Cultures in Conflict: The Seven Years' War in North Americaby Warren R. Hofstra (Editor), Fred Anderson (Contribution by), Catherine Desbarats (Contribution by), Jonathan R. Dull (Contribution by), Allan Greer (Contribution by)
The Seven Years' War (1754-1763) was a pivotal event in the history of the Atlantic world. Perspectives on the significance of the war and its aftermath varied considerably from different cultural vantage points. Northern and western Indians, European imperial authorities, and their colonial counterparts understood and experienced the war (known in the United States as the French and Indian War) in various ways. Cultures in Conflict: The Seven Years' War in North America addresses the broad pattern of events that framed this conflict's causes, the intercultural dynamics of its conduct, and its profound impact on subsequent events-most notably the American Revolution and a protracted Anglo-Indian struggle for continental control.
