The Second Seminole War and the Limits of American Aggression by C.S. Monaco is an important book on an often-neglected topic. The last monograph by an academic historian on this conflict of Florida Indian Removal, John K. Mahon’s History of the Second Seminole War, has been in print for over fifty years. While Mahon focused narrowly on elite politics and military strategy, Monaco employs settler-colonial theory to interpret the Florida war’s effects on antebellum American society as a whole. This book will draw interest from specialists in military, imperial, and Native American history.
