520    Humanism and America provides a major study of the impact 
       of the Renaissance and Renaissance humanism upon the 
       English colonization of America. The analysis is conducted
       through an interdisciplinary examination of a broad 
       spectrum of writings on colonization, ranging from the 
       works of Thomas More to those of the Virginia Company. 
       Andrew Fitzmaurice shows that English expansion was 
       profoundly neo-classical in inspiration, and he excavates 
       the distinctively humanist tradition that informed some 
       central issues of colonization: the motivations of wealth 
       and profit, honour and glory; the nature of and 
       possibilities for liberty; and the problems of just title,
       including the dispossession of native Americans. Dr 
       Fitzmaurice presents a colonial tradition which, counter 
       to received wisdom, is often hostile to profit, nervous of
       dispossession and desirous of liberty. Only in the final 
       chapters does he chart the rise of an aggressive, 
       acquisitive and possessive colonial ideology
