White Savage: William Johnson and the Invention of America - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 9781438427584

ID: 6702102

A provocative new biography of the man who forged America's alliance with the Iroquois William Johnson was scarcely more than a boy when he left Ireland and his Gaelic, Catholic family to become a Protestant in the service of Britain's North American empire. In New York by 1738, Johnson moved to the frontiers along the Mohawk River, where he established himself as a fur trader and eventually became a landowner with vast estates; served as principal British intermediary with the Iroquois Confederacy; command British, colonial, and Iroquois forces that defeated the French in the battle of Lake George in 1755; and created the first groups of "rangers," who fought like Indians and led the way to the Patriots' victories in the Revolution. As Fintan O'Toole's superbly researched, colorfully dramatic narrative makes clear, the key to Johnson's signal effectiveness was the style in which he lived as a "white savage." Johnson had two wives, one European, one Mohawk; became fluent in Mohawk; and pioneered the use of Indians as active partners in the making of a new America. O'Toole's masterful use of the extraordinary (often hilariously misspelled) documents written by Irish, Dutch, German, French, and Native American participants in Johnson's drama enlivens the account of this heroic figure's legendary career; it also suggests why Johnson's early multiculturalism unraveled, and why the contradictions of his enterprise created a historical dead end.

White Savage: William Johnson and the Invention of America

"Fintan O' Toole' s "White Savage" is a brilliant piece of historical writing. With extraordinary vividness and elegance, O' Toole explains how William Johnson' s Irish origins in a world enveloped by layers of cultural and political subterfuge helped to shape his complex, liminal, ever-shifting role as Britain' s principal Indian agent and negotiator in the American colonies. Johnson comes to life as never before-- as an Irish gentleman and a Mohawk war chief; as a diplomat and a land speculator; as an enlightened thinker and a slaveowner; a loving family man and a dedicated polygamist; and, ultimately, as the posthumous (and unlikely) symbol of national glory in the early republic. O' Toole has produced a magnificent book on this powerful, perplexing, and troubling man, whose life encompassed the triumphs and tragedies of the eighteenth century. And he has illuminated that critical time-- on the eve of the Revolution, and during the age of reason, war, and genocide-- that is now once again becoming central to our understanding of American and Atlantic history." -- Kevin Kenny, Boston College "Fintan O'Toole's "White Savage: William Johnson and the Invention of America" is a beautifully written, extremely enjoyable book about early American and transatlantic history. Most important, it is a brilliant, sensitive analysis of the murky frontiers between societies and cultures-- Irish and English, Catholic and Protestant, British and Native American, capitalist and "under-developed"-- and of one man's largely successful attempt to negotiate them in creative, sympathetic ways. William Johnson was an architect of empire, no doubt, but unlike today's imperialists his sway was based on understanding, trust, and reciprocation, not on deceit, theft, and brute force. Thus, O'Toole's book provides not only a fascinating picture of a lost past but also a glimpse into what might be a less vicious future." -- Kerby Miller, University of Missouri
