Review quote

As an introduction, [Aboriginal Peoples and the Law] offers ample contextualization of contemporary developments within the law-including overviews of historical background, treaties, Crown sovereignty, and Aboriginal rights and title-while keeping legal jargon and technical analysis to a minimum. In its efforts to remain accessible to all readers, Aboriginal Peoples and the Law invites all Canadians to participate in this crucial national discourse. -- Olivia Burgess * Canadian Literature *
