Review quote

"A superb description and analysis of the origins and current practices of the international law of indigenous rights. The book is timely and important and will be indispensable to scholars and practitioners."--W.M. Reisman, Yale Law School"James Anaya has done for indigenous people in international law what Felix Cohen did for Native Americans in the United States. He has brought clarity, understanding, and order to a field previously understood only in isolated bits and pieces. It will now be impossible to think about this topic without consideration of Professor Anaya's prodigious research and deeply analytical jurisprudential and pragmatic insights."--Rennard Strickland, Dean, Oklahoma City University School of Law, and Editor-in-chief, Cohen's Handbook of Federal Indian Law"[The author's] arguments are persuasive and his research immaculate."--The Annals (The American Academy of Political and Social Science)..".The scope, detail, and documentary rigor of [the book] make it an essential reference for future work in the field."--American Political Science Review.."a refreshing and useful perspective... No human rights collection would be complete without this well-documented survey of an often-neglected area of international law"--American Society of International Law"Anaya's presentation of the history, continuing struggles, and achievements of the indigenous rights movement is exemplary scholarship."--European Journal of International Law, Vol.8, No.2, 1997..".provides a thorough, insightful, and constructive analysis of the treatment of indigenous peoples in both historical and contemporary international law regimes. The book leaves the reader with a clearer understanding of the failures of international law in the past, as well as a sense of the potential of international law today."--Virginia Journal of International Lawshow more
