Booknews
A casebook on Indian law, divided into three major sections: the history of federal Indian law and policy; federal Indian law and policy in contemporary perspective; and the frontiers of indigenous peoples' rights. This revised and updated edition (2nd ed., 1986) brings current the law and adds new materials in such areas as the origins of federal Indian law, the expanding influence of tribes in modern lawmaking in Congress, comparative and international approaches to indigenous rights, and tribal judicial systems, including opinions of the Navajo Nation Supreme Court.
