“This is a remarkable book, and there is nothing else like it. It explains the complex subject of federal Indian law in a clear and concise way. Both lawyers and non-lawyers will find this book very helpful, as I have.”
--Honorable BJ Jones, Chief Judge of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate and Prairie Island Indian Community, and Director of the Tribal Judicial Institute
“As a tribal leader, I have found Stephen Pevar’s book to be both an excellent and useful resource.”
--W. Ron Allen, Chairman, Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, and Treasurer of the National Congress of American Indians
“Stephen Pevar’s book is an indispensable part of the toolkit for American Indian lawyers, leaders, and scholars. Nothing is a more accessible, comprehensive, and realistic treatment of modern day tribal sovereignty than The Rights of Indians and Tribes. Another edition of Pevar’s ground-breaking work is just cause for celebration.”
--Matthew Fletcher, Michigan State University College of Law (Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa)
“I highly recommend this book. Many federal employees, including myself, rely on it. The book gives clear, useful, and well-documented answers for anyone approaching the vast and often intimidating subject of federal Indian law.”
--Lori Windle, Vice-Chair, Society of American Indian Government Employees (Minnesota Chippewa, White Earth)
