Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Chippewa Treaty Rights . . . is an excellent and highly readable account of the complex political, legal, and social history of the Chippewa’s struggle for justice; appendices provide full texts of pertinent documents.”—Nancy Oestreich Lurie, Ethnohistory

 “The detail of Satz’s outline, the broad range of resource materials compiled, and the clarity of the text will make this book invaluable to a wide audience.”—James M. McClurken, American Indian Culture and Research Journal

 “The book deserves a wide audience among the general public and serious scholars. . . . [Satz] knows the record well and he writes with skill and authority built upon years of research and writing about Indians and Indian policy. . . . He has fulfilled important obligations as a scholar and intellectual: he has helped clarify our understanding of the world in which we live.”—Robert Doherty, Wisconsin Magazine of History

 “[A] well-researched and well-documented work. . . . Satz’s study will be useful to students, teachers, and scholars.”—Barbara Leibhardt Wester, Western Historical Quarterly
