Hi there,

If you're interested in Bengali Muslim politics in the first half of the twentieth century, decolonisation, literary studies and discussions over the formation of new nations, then you'll probably also be interested in listening to Neilesh Bose talk about his new book – Recasting the Region: Language, Culture, and Islam in Colonial Bengal – on New Books in South Asian Studies.

INQUIRY: Resources on Native-American/US/Canada Relations in 19th Century

Greetings,

I am looking for a good and clear source comparing American and British colonial policies regarding the Natives in the first half of the nineteenth century. Or, if no such comparison exists, at least a book/article dealing with Native policies in Canada (technically British North America) in the first half of the 19th century, after the end of the 1812 war - I am interested in land policies and treaties between the Native nations and the colonial government (in Canada) and the federal or state governemnts in the US. 

Thank you in advance,
