This was a very helpful overview of the whole sweep of Christian / European thinking about the rights or lack thereof of Indians. Very useful to understand the roots of the European views and the debates that unfolded on whether Indians should be natural slaves or were rational enough to be converted. One great quote from the book: "Law, which Europeans have long revered as their instrument of civilization, became the West’s perfect instrument of empire in the heart of darkness that was America."
