civilization And in this bold 24 lecture series you can do just that Further ideology and perceptions are themselves products of all the general factors previously cited as causes of the war Economics culture politics political theory moral values And the common denominator linking all of these previously sited causes is SLAVERY It is therefore the basic cause of the war This book is many things but most importantly what this book is NOT is an accurate representation of American history Firstly I purchased this audiobook using a free Audible credit I had and I bought it because of its catchy title I am a skeptic for all things particularly history so the title naturally caught my eye Mark Stoler is many things but most importantly what he is NOT is someone who understands American history This at best a slightly unintentional genocide apologist book trying to use the fallacy and rhetoric of anachronism to justify the actions and beliefs of people in the past More specifically anachronism is a tool often used by historians and anthropologists to justify not using genocide to describe the actions of people of past because technically genocide did not come into existence as a legally accepted term until 1948 by the United Nations At worst this audiobook is an attempt of revisionist history that completely neglects to give settler colonialism the Doctrine of Discovery and the genocide of indigenous people the rightful screen time they deserve when talking about American history The American Civil War most certainly involved disagreements about slavery But at the core were systemic extermination of indigenous people land grabs asserting dominance over others and nature through white supremacy and rapacious means of extracting everything one could from the land without the consent of the indigenous peoples Slavery was merely a byproduct of settler colonialism and while terrible slavery is too often conflated as the reason for why conflicts and war started in America It is the master narrative given time and time again and it is a cop out to avoid the deeper discussions on colonization white supremacy and the Doctrine of Discovery the Christian faith ascribed as justification of asserting dominance over others and nature Mark s message of The skeptic s guide to American history is also muddied by his deep long lasting career in the US military The US military is universally accepted as a genocide machine and continues to push content to perpetuate the idea that indigenous people no longer exist that North America was a land without people and the pilgrims were a people without a land This is not a skeptic s book but rather plucking slight half truths of US history Colonialism never stopped in America in fact the American government continues to wage land wars against indigenous peoples today who are still very much alive and thriving The Big Golden Book of Poetry representation of American history Firstly I purchased this
