Inhalt
The treatment of indigenous and tribal peoples, the world's largest minority, is a major humanitarian issue. It shapes world history and raises profound questions about what it really means to be human. This book explains who these peoples are, how they live, why governments hate them, and why their disappearance is far from inevitable.
