What were the causes of the Pequot War and King Philip’s War?
Can it be said that one side was more of an aggressor or to blame than another?
What’s the best book on this era?
My favorite book on Puritan-Indian relations is Vaughan’s New England Frontier. It will surprise you. As in regard to many such events, it’s not perfectly clear whom to blame for King Phillip’s War.
Avoid Lepore’s In the Name of War.
