The Nature and Spirit of North American Political Systems.
Barsh, Russel L.
American Indian Quarterly, v10 n3 p181-98 Sum 1986
Presents a hypothesis about what is characteristically North American in social theory, proceeding from three concepts that recur throughout the theology and cosmology of aboriginal Americans: individual conscience, universal kinship, and the endless creative power of the world. Concludes that from an aboriginal American perspective, industrial civilization is barbaric and dehumanizing. (JHZ)
