In this thoroughly revised and updated edition, Anaya incorporates references to all the latest treaties and recent developments in international law's treatment of indigenous peoples. Anaya provides new evidence to support the claim that while historical trends in international law facilitated the colonization of indigenous peoples and their lands, modern international law's human rights program has been responsive to indigenous peoples' aspirations to survive as
distinct communities in control of their own destinies. Against this historical backdrop, James Anaya discusses a new generation of international treaties that may be capable of implementing international normsning concerning indigenous peoples.

Review quote

This new edition re-confirms his reputation in this field. This is an important textbook by a major legal scholar, written, as always, with considerable fluency and clarity as well as persuasiveness...The account he gives is of an international order that in only just having turned its attention to tribal people is still in a highly formative and exploratory state. In this area international law is at its outset. This second edition is to be welcomed for so
informally taking us a stop or two further along that new pathway.
