"The New World was colonized under an international legal principle that is known today as the Doctrine of Discovery." Native America, Discovered and Conquered: Thomas Jefferson, Lewis and Clark, and Manifest Destiny by Robert J. Miller. Well, OK. And I have eight days and about 186 pages (not counting notes and the index) to learn all about this Doctrine of Discovery before I attend a seminar with Professor Miller to discuss his book.
