More About Rivers of Blood, Rivers of Gold by Mark Cocker
 
 
 
Overview
The past five centuries a shocking series of confrontations have witnessed between European nations and millions of indigenous peoples, and these cultural encounters still resonate strongly to this day. Rivers of Blood, Rivers of Gold is an essential book for understanding the true impact of imperialism. Beautifully and passionately written, it provides a judicious and exhaustively researched indictment of European exploitation. Focusing on four collisions between Europeans and indigenous cultures -- the conquest of Mexico, the British onslaught on the Tasmanian Aborigines, the uprooting of the Apaches, and the German campaign against the tribes of Southwest Africa -- Mark Cocker illuminates the fundamental experiences that underlay the colonial experience around the globe.

Beyond making a persuasive -- and balanced -- case against colonialism, Cocker also sustains a riveting, often harrowing story. Rivers of Blood, Rivers of Gold is narrative history in its most impressive form -- engaging, accessible, and thought provoking.
