Sven Lindqvist is one of our most original writers on race, colonialism, and genocide, and his signature approacha€”uniting travelogues with powerful acts of historical excavationa€”renders his books devastating and unforgettable. Now, for the first time, Lindqvista€™s most beloved works are available in one beautiful and affordable volume. The book includes the full unabridged text of a€œExterminate All the Brutesa€, called a€œa book of stunning range and near geniusa€ by David Levering Lewis. In this work, Lindqvist uses Joseph Conrada€™s Heart of Darkness as a point of departure for a haunting tour through the colonial past, retracing the steps of Europeans in Africa from the late eighteenth century onward and thus exposing the roots of genocide via his own journey through the Saharan desert. The full text of Terra Nullius is also included, for which Lindqvist traveled seven thousand miles through Australia in search of the lands the British had claimed as their own because they were inhabited by a€œlower races, a€ the native Aboriginesa€”nearly nine-tenths of whom were annihilated by whites. The shocking story of how a€œno mana€™s landa€ became the province of the white man was called a€œthe most original work on Australia and its treatment of Aboriginals I have ever reada€bmarvelousa€ by Phillip Knightley, author of Australia.Dreamings oftheDesert: Aboriginal Dot Paintings of the Western Desert.
