should matter in any except possibly medical concerns Readers with a strong sense of their own Amerindian heritage will likely find this book to be a uite repulsive A typically white washed version of how the Native American people were ecimated and vanuished from their lands by the White man who just kept coming and coming from across the sea Additionally he cautions that one must be wary of the strong bias in researching and writing history such as this where there is little or no record remaining from the losing side Leach also warns that one must take care not to let the strong colonial bias of the contemporary writings comprising the wealth of primary source material relating to this period from effecting one s analysis However this was as far as Leach a New Englander by birth and education could manage to restrain his own obvious personal bias for the colonials in relating this interesting and extremely important saga in American history It seems as though his own world view was a product to some egree of his own environment as he speaks in the book s preface of how society had so recently revisited the savagery of total war referring to World War II and how historians now could explore such topics as this without undo malice toward either side This somehow sounds uite fitting coming as it Secret Origins Action Figures did amidst the specter of the Cold War which
