Additional Book Details

Mastering American Indian Law is a text designed to provide readers with an overview of the field and serve as a useful supplement to classroom instruction covering tribal law, federal Indian law, and tribal-state relations. In ten chapters, the book has full discussions of a wide range of topics, including: Chapter 2American Indian Property Law; Chapter 3Criminal Jurisdiction in Indian Country; Chapter 4Tribal Government, Civil Jurisdiction and Regulation; Chapter 8Tribal-State Relations; and Chapter 9Sacred Sites and Cultural Property Protection. Throughout the text, explanations of the relevant interaction between tribal governments, the federal government, and state governments are included in the various subject areas. In Chapter 10International Indigenous Issues and Tribal Nations, the significant evolution of collective rights in international documents is focused upon as these documents may be relevant for tribal governments in relations with the United States. For Indian law courses, law school seminars on topics in American Indian Law, undergraduate and graduate level American Indian Studies classes, and those interested in the field, this book will provide an easy-to-read text meant to guide the reader through the historical to the contemporary on the major aspects of American Indian law and policy.

This second edition keeps pace with legal developments in policy, federal law, and court decisions, while it continues to fill a unique niche as a primary and secondary text for courses in the field. Updates are provided for key developments such as the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on tribal sovereign immunity and the release of the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs Guidelines on the interpretation of the Indian Child Welfare Act. A new discussion on Ethics and Professional Responsibility in Indian Law Practice is included in the coverage of tribal court practice.
