Re: National Delusions, or the Delusion of Nations
Of course, the way in which the governments in Canada and the USA have dealt with the Native populations has been/is problematic, to say the least.
One of the things I'm hoping to understand over the course of reading this book (and others), and through discussion, is what elements are involved in the question: Why is it that one country can have their different cultural groups living relatively peacefully together (with problems, naturally), while in others, there is active persecution? The Kurds in Turkey being only one example.
Is it geography, timing, outside influence....?
