Ten original essays focus on the rise, change, and persistence of the Native American reservation system. Contributors drawn from history, anthropology, sociology, and political science offer divergent points of view buttressed by historical and ethnographic case studies. Together, these articles suggest that the time has come or is long overdue to rethink the basic assumptions underlying Federal Indian policy. CONTENTS-Introduction, George Pierre Castile & Robert L.

"A balanced view of the variety of problems associated with the identity and character of Indian reservations and other forms of Indian settlement." --Western Historical Quarterly "An impressive source of material for several states, federal Indian policies, and tribes that heretofore have received scant scholastic attention." --Growth and Change "While many historians have avoided topical theoretical models of social scientists and cultural critics, the articles contained in this volume make convincing arguments to extend the normal boundaries of scholarship across disciplinary lines. . . . The authors have produced a highly readable yet scholarly volume." --Chronicles of Oklahoma
