Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This book advances a new perspective on oral literature and verbal art. Centered on discourse, which the contributors take as being the richest point of intersection among language, culture, society, and individual expression, this approach has broad theoretical implications for linguistics, anthropology, folklore, and literature, as well as for bilingual education and language maintenance in minority communities. Parker (American Indian studies, San Diego State U.) documents the course of the conflict into the 20th century, including recent efforts by native peoples to regain rights to land and resources through the US judicial system.
