At the time of its "discovery", the American continent was identified as the Fourth World of our planet. Today the term has been taken up again by its "Indian" or native peoples to describe their own world - both its threatened present condition and its political history, which stretches back thousands of years before Columbus. Using indigenous sources as primary sources, Book of the Fourth World explores the landscapes and chronologies of this world as they have been seen and interpreted from the inside. Mapping the continent by this literary means, it pays particular attention to the well-documented traditions of the Nahuatl (Aztec) and Maya to the north of the isthmus, and of the Quechua-speaking Inca to the South. According to both the literary evidence and the testimony of native Americans themselves, notably at the Quito Conference of July 1990, an underlying coherence is to be found in the creation story told in the "bible of America", the Popol vuh of the Quiche Maya. A classic of world literature, this 16th-century work sets out a story of evolution understood by Europe only hundreds of years later; its natural philosophy is now being defended, as a way of life critical to that of the planet itself, in the tropical forests of the Amazon. Taking a skeptical view of the 1992 quincentenary and respecting the testimony of the Indians themselves, this study brings together a wide range of evidence from what is now Latin and Anglo America. In doing so, it offers detailed analyses of texts ranging far back into the centuries of civilized life that antedated Columbus.

A foundational work of radical anticolonialism, back in print Originally published in 1974, The Fourth World is a critical work of Indigenous political activism that has long been out of print. George Manuel, a leader in the North American Indian movement at that time, with coauthor journalist Michael Posluns, presents a rich historical document that traces the struggle for Indigenous survival as a nation, a culture, and a reality. The authors shed light on alternatives for coexistence that would take place in the Fourth World—an alternative to the new world, the old world, and the Third World. Manuel was the first to develop this concept of the “fourth world” to describe the place occupied by Indigenous nations within colonial nation-states. Accompanied by a new Introduction and Afterword, this book is as poignant and provocative today as it was when first published.

The author argues that there will always be a dichotomy between European and Aboriginal thought. This book makes an important contribution toward a greater understanding of Aboriginal thought and an Aboriginal perspective on society. The Fourth World theory is an integrate part of the "Circle of Life" philosophy of Aboriginal people. In keeping with oral traditions, these teachings are passed on at gatherings and in private conversations. They compromise a distinctly Aboriginal worldview."--Pub. website.

"Gerdes' brief but informative introduction makes clear that he has been a sensitive reader of El cuarto mundo. The two narrators, although twins - one male, one female, tell different tales and use language very differently. Translation is competent, but Gerdes' own language lacks the dynamic energy of Eltit's, perhaps because he follows the Spanish structures so closely"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.

This book examines dominant beliefs in the West during the last three centuries and how they shape modernism and postmodernism. The implication of these beliefs from a cultural and ecological standpoint are examined with respect to the limits on rationalism, especially in the sciences, for the next century. This book is the first to tackle the idea of ecological limits and its implications for world cultures during the twenty-first century. This is neither a strict anthropological nor ecological examination of its subject but a combination of the two, as it concerns the post-modern world.Contents: Preface; Concerning Sin and Shadows; Elegant Amnesia; The First True Post-Modern; Denial's Undeniable Pleasures; Time, Place and Ego; I Feel, Therefore I am Afraid; 'Damnable and Detestable Curiosity'; A Daunting Paradox; The Twenty-First Century as a Fourth World.

“A very good book…another side of the wired world of tomorrow.” —Orlando Sentinel Much of the world has enthusiastically embraced the "virtual life," rejecting the cruel realities outside the big lies and shared web fan­tasies they plug themselves into twenty-four hours a day. American Santee St. John, however, has experienced real, government-imposed horrors in the troubled Mexican state of Chiapas. And along with Margaret Mayfield—his lover and kindred spirit—he has dedicated his life to the rebel cause. Then Santee vanishes into the lush and danger­ous wilds of Central America. Though his enemies say Santee St. John is dead, Margaret is determined to find him. But on a planet going rapidly to Hell, the fate of one man of conscience may prove insignificant—as Margaret's search sets her on a dark highway the corrupt and powerful are constructing in secret, a road to total ruin that winds from the opu­lent First World through the destitute Third...and all the way to Mars. From the acclaimed author of CIRCUIT OF HEAVEN comes a stunning novel that blends cutting-edge technology with razor-sharp insight into human nature as it propels us across the digital badlands of the twenty-first century. "A very effective novel... [that] bristles with political passion."—Denver Post "One of those rare SF novels that combines human warmth and political insight in an unflinching look at the possible price of technology."—Booklist

Within Native Nations: The Survival of Fourth World Peoples (2nd edition), Dr. Sharlotte Neely (Professor of Anthropology and Director, Native American Studies, Northern Kentucky University) has put together an impressive examination pertaining to the survival strategies employed by Indigenous Peoples, within the world's most advanced nations, in order to discern how Native Peoples have maintained their traditional culture, language, sacred lands, and identity. Herein nine anthropologists, one linguist, one historian, one geographer, and one political scientist focus on nine groups of Fourth World Peoples within twelve First World nations (the: Native North Americans, Aborigines, Native Hawaiians, Maori, Ainu, Natives of Taiwan, Sámi, Basques, and Bretons) and, for comparison, one Indigenous group in a Second World nation (the: Yanomami), and one in four Third World nations (the: San). All are compared and contrasted in regard to their strategies for survival.
