Reviews

"Ward Churchill opens the X-Files of American history to examine the phenomenon of genocide in eight essays . . ."--Susan A. Miller, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

"Churchill relates the history of genocide and the struggle for a definition of the term sufficiently accurate and comprehensive, to prevent the watering down of the concept, and to cut through the misleading rhetoric which now obfuscates debate, thereby permitting this and other genocides to continue . . ."--A. Clare Brandabur, Purdue University

"Churchill paints the whole picture here - from Columbus onwards, the major and significant struggles between an ignorant but brutal Conquistadores and the all-too-vulnerable American Tribes are analysed in a context of deliberate genocide. In terms of effectiveness, it surpasses the holocaust delivered upon European Jewry by the Nazis."--Schnews.org.uk
