I recommend the last section on contemporary indigenous struggles. It is the one part that successfully integrates his main themes with specific case studies. The preceding chapters seem to me like two distinct, unfinished books: one on Native Americans and another on technology. He says at the beginning that this was his original plan. However, for the reader who knows nothing about critiques of technology or indigenous people, this book is a fine place to start.
