"Grounded Authority is a powerful and compelling study based upon a sophisticated grasp of Indigenous politics, settler colonial logics, and political theory."-Kevin Bruyneel, author of The Third Space of Sovereignty: The Postcolonial Politics of U.S.-Indigenous Relations"An impressive and highly original analysis of the overlapping conflict-laden regimes of legal and political authority, Shiri Pasternak's deeply researched study provides an analytically nuanced and engaging account of the ways in which the Algonquins of Barriere Lake confront the jurisdictional claims over their land and lives made by Canada and the province of Quebec. Grounded Authority brilliantly succeeds at intervening at multiple registers."-Alyosha Goldstein, University of New Mexico

"Extremely well-researched and documented."-CHOICE
