Review quote

"A good selection of informative case studies that provide insight into a broad range of issues that have confronted Native peoples in the past and present challenges to them in the present." - Stephen Saraydar, State University of New York, Oswego "The writing level of this text is advanced - it is well-written and presented, highly detailed, and clear/well-organized." - Katharine Woodhouse-Beyer, Rutgers University - New Brunswick "Provides examples from across the North American continent, from historical times down to the present." - Robert Hill, Tulane University "Talbot admirably addresses controversies and disagreements between and among Indians and scholars . . . this does not prevent him from a well-rounded presentation of multiple perspectives." - Joseph Wilson, University of New Haven "I love how this book addresses social justice issues by using historic and contemporary information. Also linking it to theory is a bonus. Great work. I highly recommend this book." - Tamara Cheshire, Sacramento City Collegeshow more
