It put together many things I had already heard of, like contraception being used against a people, and how the environmental movement needs to be working with the Indians or it cannot succeed, and how the groups working to prevent domestic violence often increase it. Smith gave some good ideas on applications of restorative justice. All of that makes the book very worth reading.
It is also hard reading. The tales of the medical abuses, police abuses, and the results of nuclear testing on Marshall Islanders are all things that will disturb and stay with you.
Edited to add that the issues is in no way due to graphic descriptions of sexual violence. While personal assaults are acknowledged as an issue, the books is more about the attitudes and patterns that allow for that and for other violence.
