Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

History In Review
This book offers an up-to-date and relevant look at the war from a variety of viewpoints, including Canadians, Native tribes, Europeans, and American Colonist. In the process, these essays paint a vivid portrait of not only the causes and execution of war, but also its long term impact on American History, native cultures, the ongoing hostilities between native peoples and Anglo colonists. . . . A compelling book, and essential reading for anyone with an interest in any aspect of the war.
Virginia Magazine
The essays in the volume stand as a testament to the editor and contributors.
The Historian
Jonathan Dull's chapter on France in this era is perhaps the best overview of the French role in the war to be found.
Jane T. Merritt
Cultures in Conflict is an exceptional collection of essays from a diverse group of scholars. Readers will find a historiographic overview and the most recent archival research on the Seven Years' War in North America. This book raises an intriguing set of questions about early America and offers refreshing new perspectives. Particular emphasis is placed on the pivotal role played by native communities, and on the way the conflict forced native peoples to create new political and economic identities to survive its devastation.
