Summary
"This Country is Worth the Trouble of Going to War to Keep It" presents a new way of looking at the violence that marked the colonization of the American Southeast by the English, French and Spanish. It eschews older interpretations that emphasize Native savagery, and those that replaced Indian savagery with European savagery during the 1960s and 1970s. The dissertation also moves beyond the notion that English domination of the region was inevitable. The project instead places violence at the center of the narrative, and focuses on the various cultures of violence that collided with one another in the Southeast. The peoples of the Southeast interpreted and deployed violence in a variety of ways. Prolonged contact and conflict between cultures changed cultures of violence for everyone involved, and by 1740, the violence of the English Indian trade and the English plantation had dominated the region, establishing a pattern that would play out again further to the west.
