From the Back Cover
American expansion, says Richard Drinnon, is characterized by repression and racism. In his reinterpretation of "winning" the West, Drinnon links racism with colonialism and traces this interrelationship from the Pequot War in New England, through American expansion westward to the Pacific, and beyond to the Philippines and Vietnam. He cites parallels between the slaughter of bison on the Great Plains and the defoliation of Vietnam and notes similarities in the language of aggression used in the American West, the Philippines, and Southeast Asia.
About the Author
Richard Drinnon was Professor Emeritus of History at Bucknell University and the author of White Savage: The Case of John Dunn Hunter and Keeper of Concentration Camps: Dillon S. Myer and American Racism, among other books.

Philippine resistance and the Vietnam War .
I wrote a little book on some American history myself. It is not so good or such a great effort as ' Facing West' It is called 'Rising with the Underclass and Poems' and has some worthwhile history to share, and some good poetry. It is short, not at all on a level with Facing West. Everyone should read books such as 'Facing West' There is something seriously wrong with a country founded on a dominant and shared ideology that some peoples are less than human and are worthless.
