Summary John Stuart was the British superintendent of Indian affairs for the southern district of North America from 1762 until his death in 1779. In this intriguing new look at Indian relations under Stuart, J. Russell Snapp makes a compelling case for the centrality of Stuart's role in alienating Carolinians and Georgians and hastening the American Revolution. Meticulously researched and livelily written, Snapp's reassessment of Stuart's role offers valuable, thought-provoking insight into the early history of the South, clearly establishing the underlying connections between its socio-economic and political character.
