Shadow Nations

N. Bruce Duthu

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the role that the construction of America’s “imagined political community” played in catalyzing the nation’s impulse to empire in Indian Country while simultaneously repressing the formative ethos of legal pluralism. The focus, though not an exclusive one, is on highlighting the ideological moves that signaled the elevation of the emerging nation-state and the concomitant suppression or diminishment of the tribal nations.

Keywords:   imperialism, bilateralism, unilateralism, William E. Connolly, critical responsiveness, multidimensional plurality, civi-territorial complex, shallow pluralism
