This collection of essays provides a devastating portrait of the condition of Native America. From chronicling the genocide committed by European invaders, to exposing the insidious means by which contemporary politicians and academics perpetuate the physical and cultural destruction of American Indians, Churchill’s incisive analysis and carefully documented critique comprise a demand for action.
