Thomas Wood, is a Catholic. His other recent book, "The Church Confronts Modernity." is essentially a thesis about MArkets, and that the Catholic Church should support Free Market economics, and that the late schoolastics were proto-Austrian, etc.
In Politically incorect, he argues that the Native Americans' DID have concepts of Proporty rights. They weren't socialist utopias like we're now taught in Public Schools.
I don't remember any "Puritan's treated indian's justly." in the book. Certainly he complains about Sherman's war on Indians and stuff.
I'd think it's a good book to read.
2nd, it's actually in the top 10 list for several conservative book clubs. That's a good thing, because his book is a direct threat to the Neo-Con establishment. Perhaps after reading this book, concervatives will wake up and realize they've been conned by the Republican party.
