book cover wielding words like weaponsWard Churchill will present his books Wielding Words Like Weapons: Selected Essays in Indigenism 1995-2005; and Pacifism As Pathology, Reflections on the Role of Armed Struggle in North America (3rd edition) . Wielding Words like Weapons is a collection of acclaimed American Indian Movement activist-intellectual Ward Churchill’s essays in indigenism, selected from material written during the decade 1995–2005. Beginning with a foreword by Seneca historian Barbara Alice Mann describing sustained efforts by police and intelligence agencies as well as university administrators to discredit or otherwise “neutralize” both the man and Book cover Pacifism as Pathologyhis work, the book includes material illustrating the range of formats Churchill has adopted in stating his case, from sharply framed book reviews and essays, to equally pointed polemics and op-eds.

We will also meet Churchill's dissident classic, Pacifism as Pathology: Reflections on the Role of Armed Struggle in North America, Third Edition, by Ward Churchill and Michael Ryan. Originally written during the mid-1980s, the seminal essay “Pacifism as Pathology” was prompted by veteran activist Ward Churchill’s frustration with what he diagnosed as a growing—and deliberately self-neutralizing—”hegemony of nonviolence” on the North American left.
