Exemplar of Liberty: Native America and the Evolution of Democracy
By Donald A. Grinde, Jr. and Bruce E. Johansen, 1991.
The primary focus of this groundbreaking work, according to its authors, is "to let American Indian voices be heard on the issue of Iroquois political theory and its role in the development of American governmental structures." Using archival research, the authors illustrate the impact of Iroquois and other Native American political theories on the creation of fundamental American doctrines of government, such as the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Exemplar of Liberty is a definitive study of how the founders of the United States combined European, American, and Indian ideas into a new and revolutionary political system.
