The Conquest of America: How the Indian Nations Lost Their Continent
Paperback, 150 pages
Released: January 1993
This sequel to the author’s best-selling Columbus: His Enterprise provides, in ten short chapters, a brilliant account of the ongoing war waged by Europeans against the native peoples of the Americas in the five centuries after Columbus arrived. Ranging from the Spanish conquest to the colonization of North America, from the seizure of land from the native inhabitants to present-day military interventions, Koning’s provocative and readable history provides students with a different perspective on U.S. history and a framework for understanding U.S. policy toward indigenous and foreign peoples.
Hans Koning (1921-2007) was a journalist and novelist. Among his many books are Columbus: His Enterprise, The Almost World, The Conquest of America, and Pursuit of a Woman on the Hinge of History.
