The Dead Do Not Die
'Exterminate All the Brutes' and Terra Nullius
The two works presented in this volume are concerned with the impact of European colonialism on native peoples: in ‘Exterminate All the Brutes’ – a phrase taken from Conrad’s Heart of Darkness – Lindquist travels in Africa and explores the history of the concept of extermination; Terra Nullius is about the shameful treatment of Aboriginal peoples in Australia. With an introduction by Adam Hochschild. Translated from the Swedish.
A Brief Guide to Native American Myths and Legends
The world of Native American mythology is inhabited by such fantastical and capricious characters as the shape-shifting trickster Coyote and the mischievous Blue Jay. The seminal study of these sacred tales was written by the Scottish folklorist Lewis Spence in 1914; this updated edition has a new introductory essay, commentary on Native American culture and stories from tribes, not covered by Spence such as the Inuit.
