The paper examines Colin G. Galloway's book, "New Worlds for All: Indians, Europeans and the Remaking of Early America" where he introduces a twenty-first century readership to an ethnohistorical review on colonial America and its multicultural origins. The paper discusses how Galloway emphasizes that interactions between European settlers and the Native American population brought on new identities for everyone, thus creating a uniquely American identity. The paper looks at the content, limitations and many achievements of this work and notes the generally biased state of American history.
From the Paper:"The term "emergent" was coined by philosopher G. H. Lewes (2004) in his 1875 treatise, "Problems of Life and Mind." As applied to the fields of Philosophy, Systems Theory, and the Sciences, emergence is "the arising of novel and coherent structures, patterns and properties during the process of self-organization in complex systems." (Lewes 2004). Common characteristics include experiences and situations that are new and radically different from anything previously observed; cohesive structures that hold together over an extended period of time; a global, or macro-level, of wholeness; a dynamic process evolution within the structure; and a tangible result."
