One is certainly entitled to one's opinion of Churchill, but lies are not opinions. They're just lies.
So much for the "issue" of Churchill's ethnicity, as if it had bearing on either the merits of his argument or the eloquence with which he presents it in the first place.
A LITTLE MATTER OF GENOCIDE is a superb book, far more comprehensive and better documented than Stannard's AMERICAN HOLOCAUST (note that the reviewer who complained about inaccurate footnotes offered no examples).
This is probably the best and most important work yet from one Native North America's best and most important writer/scholars.
A brief, interesting discussion is provided on the controversial birth status of Christopher Columbus's extraction and arguements favoring Italian (Genoese), Spanish, Portuguese, or even Jewish nationality, etc. Churchill notes there are more than 250 books and articles devoted to and another 300 essays or folios discussing this issue.
Various genocide references are made: Cambodian (Khmer Rouge), Armenian (Turks), Gypsies, Poles and Jews (Nazi) and those occurring in North, Central and South America. Even fetal genocide is mentioned. Churchill refutes, heatedly debates and debunks the prevalent and largely American Jewish assertion that the only true genocide ever to have taken place was the Jewish Holocaust.
A concluding discussion and definition of genocide, actions of the UN General Assembly and some clarifying of definitions and intents of meaning in Articles 1-V111 of the Convention on Prevention and Punishment of Genocide (1948) was very helpful.
The book is ponderous reading: the content is shocking for it departs radically from that which had been taught in school. However, Churchill comes off as having written a masterful account which, once embraced, is difficult to put down until it has been read. The all too few picture and the explanatory footnotes are invaluable. This is a must read for those who profess to be informed.
I couldn't wait to get home and start reading it. The book itself would be a bit overwhelming for someone with little or no knowledge of the subject matter. [In fact, at times I struggled with grasping some of the concepts Churchill was laying down]. But do not let this frighten you. Although VERY "scholarly" regarding the subject matter, this book can be read like a novel...there are plenty of footnotes and brief explanations so as not to alienate the reader.
What you'll be reading is some pretty gruesome stuff in parts...most importantly, you'll be wondering: "WHAT and WHY and HOW could all of these events have occured!?"
That, I think, is the whole idea behind Churchill's book. To get us THINKING and to QUESTION.
One of the most remarkable aspects of this book is that you DON'T have to read it from front-to-back. [But it would make more sense in the long run]. The reader could just pick out a chapter, read it, and historically/chronologically figure it out. Myself?: I've put it in the 'reference' section of my personal collection.
This is without question a book for anyone curious about a 'behind-the-scenes' look into our Western history. A lot of it isn't pretty, but real life isn't.
