The Ormsby Review: The Fourth World

A foundational work of radical anticolonialism, back in print

Re-issued by the University of Minnesota Press with a new introduction by Glen Coulthard and an afterword by George Manuel’s daughter Doreen Manuel, this classic 1974 text is now available to a new generation of readers. The Fourth World weaves an oral history of Secwepmec political leader, George Manuel (1921-1989) with the research and writing skills of Michael Posluns (born 1941) a Canadian journalist and researcher, who passed away in January 2020 in Toronto while I was preparing this review.
