  • Entries A-Z

Created by a culturally diverse editorial board of major scholars and containing invaluable bibliographic material not found in other publications, this definitive work examines the history and impact of U.S. relations with Native Americans. Extensive essays trace policies from the Continental Congress to the present day—including the role that managing the “Indian question” has played in American political development—while A to Z entries cover everything critical to a full understanding of the context to U.S./Native American relations, from history, politics, and sociology to civil rights and culture. It is also the first reference of its kind to incorporate the expanding scholarship reflecting both the Native American viewpoint on and response to federal policies and initiatives over time.
