About this item

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.El libro del pensador nativo americano Jack Forbes, Colon y otros caníbales, era uno de los textos fundamentales del movimiento anticivilización cuando fue publicado por primera vez en 1978.

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
