From Publishers Weekly
One of the most outspoken of current Native American activists, Churchill ( Fantasies of the Master Race ) here produces a fine volume of essays devoted to Native peoples' efforts to recover their lost lands and to protect what they have left. Threats to their territories take many forms, including expropriation, flooding for production of hydroelectric power and what Churchill terms ``radioactive colonization,'' whereby Native lands and waters are destroyed through uranium mining. Native resistance varies as well, ranging from legal suits and savvy marshaling of international public opinion to defense by force of arms. Deftly dealing with the situation in both the United States and Canada, Churchill debunks important myths (e.g., that there is a single ethnicity that can encompass all of North America's indigenous peoples). In the final essay, he expounds his version of ``indigenism,'' which he defines as giving the highest political priority to indigenous rights--whether in America, Australia or elsewhere. This is an important contribution to a growing body of work stressing Native sovereignty and self-determination.
