Abstract
"An illustrated introduction to traditional and contemporary Indian tribal government, its evolution and its current legal powers. O'Brien (government and international studies, University of Notre Dame) examines the structure and legal rights of modern tribal governments, and their relationship to federal and state governments. Drawing on interdisciplinary sources, she focuses on the struggle of Indian tribes and their governments to achieve freedom and self-determination in the face of efforts to dominate, exterminate or assimilate them."--WorldCat.org.
