Brandao demolishes long-standing myths concerning the economic warfare by the Iroquois in the Beaver Wars and establishes a new examination of 17th century Iroquoian attitudes toward foreign policy. Also examines motives for warfare, arguing that typical motives involved protection of hunting land and territory, the need to replenish populations and the desire to gain honor, as opposed to purely economic reasons.
