Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"…a valuable resource of information drawn from the voluminous annals of American Indian affairs. Grossman's work is unique in drawing together Native rights issues and including material not found in other works. Highly recommended for academic and public libraries."

-

Library Journal

"Meaty articles, each concluded by numerous cross-references and succinct bibliographies … a significant and unique contribution to the reference literature on America's native peoples and their history. While other sources treat the peoples from ethnological and other perspectives, only this thoroughly researched and clearly written book focuses on the issue of their rights."

-

Rettig on Reference (Gale.com)

"The alphabetically arranged entries are well written and informative … Useful, well-crafted, and easy to use, this work is highly recommended for all collections."

Library Journal
Taking the view that the Native rights struggle began at European contact, Grossman Guide to the Persian Gulf War, LJ 5/1/96 offers a valuable resource of information drawn from the voluminous annals of American Indian affairs. The alphabetically arranged articles reach back to the Laws of Burgos Spain, 1512 but emphasize North American treaties, legislation, court decisions, presidential messages, commissions, and reports. Cross-cultural biographies include reformers, Indian commissioners, historic Native leaders, and 20th-century activists, while ethnology, pan-Indianism, archaeological protection, Native religious practice, gaming regulations, and taxation are among the topics covered. Native American rights have been addressed in many narrative texts, e.g., Wilcomb E. Washburn's classic Red Man's Land, White Man's Law LJ 9/1/71, and several impressive encyclopedias on Natives have appeared recently, e.g., Encyclopedia of North American Indians LJ 12/96. Yet Grossman's work is unique in drawing together Native rights issues and including material especially descriptions of federal cases not found in other works. Enhanced by a 30-page bibliography and a 25-page timeline, this is an important source. Highly recommended for academic and public libraries.-Margaret W. Norton, Morton West H.S., Berwyn, Ill.
