Struggle for the Land traces the history of Native American resistance and struggle for decolonization. By focusing upon certain modes of resource exploitation--uranium mining, coal stripping, hydropower generation, and water diversion--Churchill demonstrates clearly that the effects of State/corporate business in the most native-populated hinterlands of the continent are as ecocidal as they are genocidal. The ecological havoc being wreaked cannot be contained within reservation areas, and therefore poses a threat to all North Americans, presenting a common ground upon which Indians and non-Indians alike can and must struggle to repeal the status quo.
