Summary "American Indian educator and political philosopher Jack Forbes's Columbus and Other Cannibals was one of the founding texts of the anti-civilization movement when it was first published in 1978. His history of terrorism, genocide, and ecocide told from a Native American point of view has continued to inspire America's most influential activists for decades. Now available for the first time in a Spanish translation, this radical critique of the modern 'civilized' lifestyle is more vital than ever before; ... 'Brutality knows no boundaries. Greed knows no limits. Perversion knows no borders. These characteristics all push towards an extreme, always moving forward once the initial infection sets in. This is the disease of the consuming of other creatures' lives and possessions. I call it cannibalism'--Jack Forbes, from the introduction"-- Provided by publisher.
