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.
The likely truthes in this book will be painful to those who have a high emotional investment in the euphemistic version of history taught in schools.
The acidic remarks by the only negative reviewer here is the signature, kneejerk and strictly emotional response to information that would contradict the substance or foundation of what they base their "pride", in America, on.
Insofar as it is important to keep peoples alive in our memory, Churchill does a noble deed in laying before us the stories and the baneful fates of tribes and cultures that would be virtually forgotten without documentation like this.
People like to dismiss Mr. Churchill because of his controversial views, his declared tribal affiliation, or his willingness to unsparingly lay bare the horrors and atrocities that fester beneath the vaunted 'American history', but in fact it will be impossible to refute or poo poo the wealth of facts that he here presents in very clear, well-written indictment.
Anyone who harbours a sense of the bold and glorious conquest of the continent, content with the history book version of that epoch, will be shattered and sobered by this meticulous accounting of just what the First Nations endured and suffered in the unfolding of the American expansion.
