Synopsis: American Indian educator and political philosopher Jack Forbes's Columbus and Other Cannibals was one of the founding texts of the anti-civilization movement when it was first published in 1978. His history of terrorism, genocide, and ecocide told from a Native American point of view has continued to inspire America's most influential activists for decades. Now available for the first time in a Spanish translation, this radical critique of the modern 'civilized" lifestyle is more vital than ever before.

Ahora disponible por primera vez en una traducción español, esta crítica radical del estilo de vida moderno y "civilizado" es más vital que antes.
"Brutality knows no boundaries. Greed knows no limits. Perversion knows no borders . . . These characteristics all push towards an extreme, always moving forward once the initial infection sets in . . . This is the disease of the consuming of other creatures' lives and possessions. I call it cannibalism."--Jack Forbes, from the Introduction
