Description - A Little Matter of Genocide by Ward Churchill
Holocaust, genocide and denial have a specific American history that reaches back 500 years and continues into present day. It lives in legends of the Hollywood Western and the Old West itself, and has raged unabated in all the Americas since the first European settlers landed. People often link the term holocaust with the Nazi extermination of the Jews, yet in this text Ward Churchill presents judicial, historical and sociological evidence in support of his argument that genocide against indigenous Americans has continued unabated for over 500 years. This text confronts the amnesia of a continent in order to reverse the legacy of this terrible history. Churchill reveals how the international definition has been subverted to meet various political and hegemonic ends. In this researched volume, he demonstrates why the suffering of indigenous people should be included in the category of genocide.
