A good companion to Guns, Germs and Steel. Stolen Continents is the depressing tale of how Europeans came to power in the Americas. A depressing litany of death and destruction.

"History is written by the winners, and so the 'discovery' of the New World in 1492 has been clebrated as one of hamanity's great moments." Mr Wright looks at the America's through Indian eyes since 1492 and tells us a different story than the one we have been told for hundreds of years.
