State and Reservation

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.

The authors have produced a highly readable yet scholarly volume." --Chronicles of Oklahoma
