This emotional diatribe is heavy on hyperbole and guilt. The author berates the federal government for betraying its treaty obligations but doesn't enumerate exactly what those commitments were. Several times the author asserts that Canadians must embrace "reconciliation" and then offer "restitution" to aboriginals. Unfortunately, for the reader, Saul never elaborates on the nature of reconciliation nor the form of restitution. His focus is the undeniable injustices of the past rather than a vision of a better future. The book provides brief end notes and an index. The text is riddled with academic jargon. The final 100 pages are transcripts of notable writings by aboriginal leaders.

Powerful book as to the assertions of First Nation peoples and the wrongs committed against them by the government not respecting treaties and agreements. Good historical background and also timely to 2014.
