About this book
In this provocative collection of essays, Ward Churchill examines the definition of genocide -- in legal as well as cultural terms. He begins by framing the matter of holocaust denial, examining both "revisionist" denial of the Jewish Holocaust, and the opposing claim of its exclusive "uniqueness." Then, using the true scope of what happened in Europe under Nazism as a reference point, Churchill provides a stunning array of evidence in support of the argument that genocide is precisely what has been carried out against Indians of the Americas since the arrival of Columbus, with atrocities continuing unabated today.

Churchill reveals how the international definition of the crime of genocide has been subverted to meet various political ends -- and demonstrates why the historic and contemporary suffering of indigenous peoples should be included in this category.
