From the Publisher"As part of the continuing spate of reference literature on the American Indian, this encyclopedia provides informative, up-to-date access to issues of equality and civil rights. More than 600 entries ranging in length from a paragraph to several pages cover individuals, organizations, court cases, legislation, events, and the like. . . . [I]ts dictionary format is very easy to use."
"This is a quality resource that will be welcomed by school and public libraries, especially in areas where there is an interest in native American history."
"[Contains] clear, informative articles that explain the significance of laws, events, court cases, policy initiatives, treaties, organizations, bureaucrats, politicians, rights advocates, and other matters relevant to the evolving codification and enforcement of Indians' civil rights. Those matters include the policies of pre-United States colonial pwers towards Indians, education, mineral rights, and pan-Indianism….Reference shelves sag beneath books that summarize the histories of North American Indian tribes; but, until now, they lacked a source that focused on the significant topic of Indians' civil rights."
Rettig on Reference
"A brief chronology, a list of major Indian civil rights court cases organized by topic, a bibliography, and an index make this well-organized volume a recommended purchase for public and academic libraries."
