Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

This highly readable history documents three turbulent years in the history of Native America, beginning in the early winter of 1969, when a few dozen activists occupied Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay. The American Indian Movement became prominent by that action, and Chaat and Warrior chart its fortunes through the three years culminating in both Nixon's reelection and the siege at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, where armed AIM sympathizers held off federal agents for eight weeks. The period between Alcatraz and Wounded Knee, the authors write, "was for American Indians every bit as significant as the counterculture was for young whites, or the civil rights movement for blacks."

I knew nothing about any of the events depicted in this book. They had been referenced in some other readings I had completed so I was seeking out more information. I felt this book was a great synopsis of the events of the Indian rights movement of the 60's and 70's. I was disappointed in the lack of information on Leonard Peltier and his situation. I wanted the book to continue for a few more years! I think it is sad that the general public has forgotten, so quickly, what occurred during this time. I was born in 1965 and I think once this movement was waning from the media, it was quickly forgotten by the majority of Americans, which is sad. I would recommend this book to anyone searching to understand the plight of the Native Americans today and the history of their search for freedom and the right to exist as they choose.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Distinctly unbiased, thoroughly researched, well written. I was happily suprised by the unbiased treatment of an important if forgotten part of recent american history. My understanding of AIM and its leaders was broadened as was my pity for the BIA and its powerless leaders. I learned many things I was unaware of. Great read for those interested in political movements, american history and native americans.

This book is a fabulous overview of a widely ignored and/or distorted movement in American and Indian history. The authors successfully led me through events that previous writers have misrepresented, in a mostly objective fashion. This book was my starting off point for a year's worth of research on the Trail of Broken Treaties of 1972. It was instramental in placing events in historical context, keeping me focused, and being a guide to other sources.

Chaos Reigns 13. Oktober 2000
Von "furious@w-link.net" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am a grad student who read this book in preparation of a paper on the movement. I did not know my precise focus, but after reading this book I thought my focus should be the disunity of the leadership of AIM. This book presents a leadership that could not seem to come together on a precise mission. The key figures seem well-intentioned but their lack of agreement on direction seemed to tear things apart.
This book has a lot of great information about the leadership and it is a excellent reference for learning about the seizure at Alcatraz, the Native American Embassy and the second seige at Wounded Knee. I think my problem with the book was that I had heard of these events for years and had romanticized them and to read the problems AIM faced internally left me surprised and let down.

Covers the topic well 13. Dezember 2012

If you want to understand the roots of the AIM and a lot of the anger of Natives this is a good start. This is a pretty goggles-off view oft he people and actions involved in a very important part of internal American history. Start with this one, then work your way through the rest of the Native political bookshelf. It'll open your eyes.
