This chapter considers the early novels of James Fenimore Cooper. One of these is The Spy, which features problems of wartime heroism and creates a dialectical relationship between the mercenary and the spy. The chapter notes that the characters help develop models of private affiliation which do involve the promotion of multiple and non-exclusive attachments.

Keywords:   James Fenimore Cooper, Spy, wartime heroism, dialectical relationship, private affiliation, non-exclusive attachments
