Monroe. 1993. Common Courage Press. 1st Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. 15. 480 pages. paperback. 1567510000. keywords: October 2. inventory # 41162. FROM THE PUBLISHER - An important document exposing how the mechanisms of genocide undermine the fight for freedom. Much more than a compendium of theft and genocide, these collected essays stand as a testament to relentless resistance, and strength of the will to survive in the face of crushing opposition. An impassioned call to join the struggle towards justice and the values essential for planetary survival: ‘. I’m proud to stand inside the heritage of native struggle. I’m proud to say I’m an unreconstructable indigenist. For me, there’s no other reasonable or realistic way to look at the world. And I invite anyone who shares that viewpoint to come aboard, regardless of your race, creed or national origin.’ - from Struggle for the Land. Struggle for the Land includes essays on: Radioactive Colonization; The Black Hills Land Struggle; The ‘Navajo-Hopi Land Dispute’; and The Water Plot: Hydrological Rape in Northern Canada. A crucial volume for anyone interested in environmental issues. Bookseller Inventory #

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.
