The Elusive West and the Contest for Empire, 1713-1763

Paul W. Mapp


This book presents a continental history in its investigation of eighteenth-century diplomacy involving North America and links geographic ignorance about the American West to Europeans' grand geopolitical designs. The book demonstrates the centrality of hitherto understudied western regions to early American history and shows that a Pacific focus is crucial to understanding the causes, course, and consequences of the Seven Years' War.

Keywords: eighteenth-century diplomacy, North America, American West, geopolitical designs, early American history, Pacific, Seven Years' War
