The Conquest of Paradise: Christopher Columbus and the Columbian Legacy

Kirkpatrick Sale, Author Plume Books $14 (464p) ISBN 978-0-452-26669-8
This demythologizing biographical adventure credits Columbus with the birth of American slavery and Euro-colonialism, and examines how peaceful Native Americans saw their societies and environments plundered by the whites' encroachments. Sale's ``wide-angled history represents a major rethinking of the relationship between Europe and America,'' said PW. (Sept.)
