About the Book
Settler Colonialism
is a pamphlet put together by Daraja Press for their "Thinking Freedom" series. It examines the genesis in the USA of the first full-fledged settler state in the world, which went beyond its predecessors in 1492. The text originates from Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz (2021) Not A Nation of Immigrants: Settler Colonialism, White Supremacy, and a History of Erasure and Exclusion.

You can buy the pamphlet on the Daraja Press website here OR you can write to us at to acquire a e-copy.
