    Description"Red Power","Praise for the first edition: "An essential handbook for anyone concerned with the never-ending struggle of Native Americans to obtain freedoms that other Americans have long taken for granted."--New York Times Book Review. Red Power is a classic documentary history of the American Indian activist movement. This landmark second edition considerably expands and updates the original, illustrating the development of American Indian political activism from the 1960s through the end of the twentieth century. Included in the fifty selections are influential statements by Indian organizations and congressional committees, the texts of significant laws, and the articulate voices of individuals such as Clyde Warrior, Vine Deloria Jr., Dennis Banks, Wilma Mankiller, Ada Deer, and Russell Means. The selections are organized around key issues: the nature of the original Red Power protest; tribal identity, self-determination, and sovereignty; land claims and economic development; cultural traditions and spirituality; education; and reservation conditions. Alvin M. Josephy Jr. was the founding chairman of the board of the National Museum of the American Indian. His many books include Five Hundred Nations: An Illustrated History of North American Indians. Joane Nagel is chair of the sociology department at the University of Kansas and the author or editor of several books, including American Indian Ethnic Renewal: Red Power and the Resurgence of Identity and Culture. Troy Johnson is an associate professor of American Indian studies and history at California State University, Long Beach, and the author of several books, including The Occupation of Alcatraz Island: Indian Self-Determination and the Rise of Indian Activism."
