You are to conduct a book review of The Conquest of the Desert: Argentina’s Indigenous peoples and the battle for history. Attached is an example of how a book review looks like. Please read the book and avoid the temptation of copying and pasting one. SafeAssign is really good at catching this.
As a way of introduction (and why I think this book is important). If you ask people in Argentina about their native population, they will say they don’t have one, because they were eliminated during the wars of the pampas in the 19th century. Of course this is not true, but that is the history that gets narrated. So, what is lost when these silences occur? Why is it so important to keep these memories with us? HOW do you keep such narratives/archives when the state is the one that controls them? These are just some of the possible topics/or ways you can go and pursue with this book. What is the legacy of conquest in Argentina and what do you think the future is for this and other instances?
