Title: Conquest: Sexual Violence and American Indian Genocide
Author: Andrea Smith
Number of Pages: 245 pages
Book Number/Goal: 13/30 for 2010
My Rating: 5/5

In this book, Smith examines how colonialism is tied to sexual violence and how that lense can be used to examine what has been done and is still being done to Native Americans, especially Native American women. This covers not just what we generally think of as sexual violence, but also cultural appropriation, environmental damage, and population control. It's a really excellent book and while it wasn't written in a casual manner, I found the language pretty easy to follow most of the time.


If anyone wants my copy, please let me know. (US only, sorry. Shipping outside the US is too expensive for me.) Taken!
