"Highly recommended…Fascinating and insightful …. Goes beyond a description of existing cultures to illuminate. on a global scale, the struggle of these peoples against the loss of their cultural identity….This book should serve as a ‘wake-up’ call to people everywhere." — Library Journal
"To read anthropologist Jack Weatherford is to look into the mirror….His sweep is of all of recorded history and earlier, encompassed in these last brief 10,000 years, everything from Han Chinese and aborigines, from Micronesians and Tatars, from Greeks and Egyptians and from Alexander the Great to ethnic cleansing in Bosnia."

"Hugely entertaining." — Kirkus Reviews
