Debating the Origins of Democracy: Overview of an Annotated Bibliography. Commentary.
Johansen, Bruce E.
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v20 n2 p155-72 1996
The idea that Native American confederacies practiced a form of democracy that influenced development of the U.S. Constitution has become established in general discourse. An anecdotal overview of a 550-item bibliography focuses on the idea's spread to unanticipated places, academic debates, and conservative critics' horror story of the outcomes of multiculturalism and political correctness.
