Killing the Natives: Has the American Dream Become a Nightmare?
by Guy R. McPherson

Killing the Natives: Has the American Dream Become a Nightmare? thoroughly describes how our indefatigable pursuit of the American Dream - "live long and prosper" - threatens the world's native cultures, languages, and species and ultimately our own civilization. This critical, scholarly assessment is rooted in history, shaped by culture, and bounded by a broad and optimistic vision. It contains pragmatic solutions to important, timely problems.

Killing the Natives connects the world of economics, the government, and social justice--three enterprises that are inextricably linked despite the appearance given by laissez-faire economic policies. The intersection of environmental protection, social justice, and the human economy represents rich but essentially uncharted territory. Author Guy R. McPherson explains, in readily accessible language, how we can "wake up" from our self-induced nightmare and stop the massacre.
