Editorial Reviews

Napra ReView
Clearly a major and frequently highly controversial thinker of our time, Deloria reveals essential insights into Native history, psychology, modern activism, and spiritual identity.
Booknews
A collection of 29 essays from Native American writer Deloria written over the course of his career and treating an array of topics. Included in the articles, grouped loosely into sections on philosophy, social science, education, Indians, and religion, are a comparison of the Indian trickster figure and the Western messiah, an exploration of the thought of scientific philosopher Paul Feyerabend, and a critique of anthropologists' Bering Strait migration theory.
