A Journey Through No One's Land
Terra Nullius is the latest instalment in Sven Lindqvist's confrontation with the genocidal consequences of Western advancement ... Lindqvist's strength is the sheer heat of his passions and the boldness with which he attacks complacency ... The landscape, and his journeying, are brilliantly rendered by a master of worldly insight and stylistic precision ... a work of urgent necessity and a heart-warming marvel * Independent * Readers of his earlier masterpieces, A History of Bombing and Exterminate all the Brutes will know that Sven Lindqvist is a brilliant and original writer as well as a fierce polemicist. With Terra Nullius he has undertaken another devastating journey of historical exploration. -- Geoff Dyer Fascinating * Guardian *
