UCLA Professor Benjamin Madley is an historian of Native America, the United States, and genocide in world history. His first book, An American Genocide, was published by Yale University Press.

Between 1846 and 1873, California’s Indian population plunged from perhaps 150,000 to 30,000.

The prospect of more such battles looms, and it...
