I am reading Kirkpatrick Sales' 'Christopher Columbus and the Conuest of Paradise' at the moment This could be called a 'revisionist' interpretation of the the famous 1492 voyage of discovery of the Caribbean and subseuently of the Americas by Columbus Its revisionist because the author writes about the ecological destruction of the the Caribbean islands the effect it had on the native Tainos who were initially praised by Columbus as of being a peaceful race and who later became chastised and murdered in their thousands and the fundamental effect of an New World being ravaged and destroyed by an Old World all dating from the last decade of the fifteenth century Essentially Modern America is the product of Late Medieval European Civilisation and importantly of a deformed and twisted religion which transplanted a belief of nature being all good and respected into something that should be feared and treated only for the benefit of humankind; a mechanistic materialist self serving outlook rather than a natural one Nature should serve humankind and be treated indiscriminately and as Marx said Man opposes himself to naturein order to appropriate nature’s products This resulted in the ecological misuse which even Columbus noted on his third voyage so soon after the initial discovery 14989 of the native habitat of Cuba whereby the forests were cut down and the land laid to waste from the attempted transplanting of European plants and animals and the building of forts and towns to protect themselves from the umm 'peaceful' natives The effect from this and not only this but also the introduction of European disease would be catastrophic to the indigenous natives and their eco system which saw the eventual extinction of both the Tainos and much indigenous habitat and animals of which none of it was recorded by Columbus or his protégées What is worse is that this was no innocent voyage of 'discovery' or an adventuring voyage to discover new lands just for the 'purpose' of discovery but rather a voyage based around the discovery of new lands for the purpose of exploitation and increase in material wealth; an early case of classic colonialism with the sole intent of the pursuit of the magic word of 'Gold' Gold is most excellent wrote Columbus and whoever has it may do as he wishes in the world This and this only argues Sale was the overriding factor of this period of discovery The discovery of gold which took till 1499 to find a good source would later make Spain a strong power in Europe but would later stunt its capitalist developmentI remember in 1992 that there were a lot of activities surrounding the celebrations of the 500th year since the discovery of the 'New World' This also was a time in my life that I was beginning to become interested in politics so I do remember it well All the celebrations though were primarily geared towards a celebration of Columbus rather than any critiue of his legacy or at least any alternative visions of the in all effect rape and despoliation of 'paradise' and the eventual transplantation of European culture which lead to slavery and severe exploitation of man and nature It’s an interesting read and extremely well written and researched

Really hard to rate this one It is fairly well written and seems well researched based on the notes although not literally footnoted with numbers and there is much interesting information But I am not sure this guy should be called a 'historian' Without looking up a thing about him he seems to be a man on a mission Hence the word Legacy in the title This is of a polemic against everything and nearly everyone European In his view repeatedly stated the European civilization and people alone on earth were capable of and in fact compelled by a posioned ideology to commit the destruction of the New World along with genocide This is pretty strong stuff but it suffuses the work Page 91 gives an example of his view a civilization still dispirited and adrift turmoiled and beset sickened by gloom and suffering etc A civilization of death nearly an entire chapter devoted to the Europeans propensity for dying and hence killing he surmises It goes on and on in this vein Had the Persians Carthiginians Arabs Mongols or Ottomans to name several non European empires just a few boats and a little intrepidity they would surely have halted their invasionish ways at the first site of the beautiful natives and paradise of the New World Surely THEY would have left the Tainos alone upon seeing how reverential they were to the land The Europeans lived in a tough neighborhood nowhere is this mentioned Spain spent 700 years of fighting to reclaim their land from the Muslim invasions Does not even rate a mention in the index The Mongols swept to their eastern border and crushed Russia and the Muslim empires This is too inconvienient to mention You will recoil of course upon reading of what did happen to the New World mainly death by disease which neither the Europeans or anyone had literally a clue in the medicinal sense anyone with today's knowledge and sensibilities would The wanton slaughter is nauseating and ecological damage dismaying But the author wants to judge and condemn an entire continent and people by standards of today that simply did not exist Slavery was rampant around the 'civilized' world and before and certainly existed in the Muslim realms where slaves were routinely taken in conuest and slaughter rape and destruction of enemies par for the course This book has to be read to absorb the totality of this man's condemnation of Europe Columbus is just a vessel of that hatred Written in the early 1990s I imagine it has become or already is the 'playbook' for the dismantling of the legend and renaming of everything Columbus And sadly probably embraced in leftist history departments in every major University When discussing the apparently perfect Indian culture of the entire New World almost totally pacific eco friendly and so happy he fairly gushes with enthusiasm and calls any historian who dares uestion that view 'mean spirited' I have read uite a bit on the Indians and there is much to admire and to disdain The torture methods for captives among many tribes were second to none read 'Comanches' by TR Feherenbach He writes this after writing one of the most mean spirited accounts 'history' that I have read He actually provides a very interesting summary on the legacy of Columbus as it developed over the ensuing centuries first ignored and then barely known grudgingly acknowledged finally celebrated only by about 400 yr mark 1892 and thence on to today's rather mixed reception But the kicker comes in the Epilogue on p 369 of my edition when he states that 'there is only one way to live in America and there can ONLY my emphasis be one way and that is as Americans the original Americans for that is what the earth of America demands' I wonder what this writer has renounced to actually go back and live as the 'original' Americans I'll have to look it up
