In this compelling book, respected lawyer and Native rights advocate Thomas Berger surveys the history of the Americas since their "discovery" by Christopher Columbus in 1492. His accounts of the slaughter and disenfranchisement of indigenous people throughout North, Central and South American reveal a searing pattern of almost unimaginable duplicity and inhumanity. But as A Long and Terrible Shadow makes clear, Native peoples have defied the odds, waging a tenacious struggle to survive and to re-emerge as distinct cultures. As Native Voices demand action and Native land claims take their rightful place on the political agenda, this book provides a focus for crucial debate.

He is recognized internationally for his work in the areas of human rights and jurisdictional justice for the world's northern peoples.
