Native American hunters' animal pelts unsold and increased the likelihood that land cessions would be employed to relieve their debts. After 1809, Sadosky contends that the same trans-Atlantic commercial and diplomatic networks that had long served Native peoples' interests began to turn irrevocably away from them. The book concludes with an original and provocative discussion of how a ``Jackson Doctrine'' (200) emphasizing the isolation of Native American polities from the commercial and political networks of the wider Atlantic world preceded and informed the better-known Monroe Doctrine in shaping the United States's ``pretensions of hemispheric hegemony'' for the remainder of the nineteenth century. Sadosky finds in the removal of the Cherokees after 1830 nothing less than the emergence of the modern American nation-state--an argument that ought to encourage proponents of a supposedly weak central government in the era of the early republic to reconsider the implications of this forcible relocation of a minority population formerly recognized as an independent nation and later reduced by Congressional legislation to the status of an ethnic or racial minority in practice. Sadosky deserves high praise for refusing to fall into the trap of retrospection and ``write off '' Native Americans as significant players
