1 Jan 1993
General Store Publishing House
How did Pizarro subjugate the Inca Empire with less than 500 men? How did debates in 16th century Spain between de Sepulveda and de Las Casas lay the basis for the legal concept of Aboriginal title? Providing a broad comparison of historical, social, and cultural aspects of Indigenous groups around the world, this slim volume answers these questions and more, while discussing the challenges these groups face post-European contact. Goehring draws parallels in their struggles, including the right to self-determination, land recognition, and an economy which allows for participation on Indigenous peoples' terms.
