More than 4 weeks availability
A timely study of the Aboriginal rights movements, this collection of essays explores the situation in Canada and Mexico, where demands by Native peoples for political autonomy and sovereignty are increasing, and suggests why there is little corresponding activity in the United States. The contributors address practical questions about the viability of multiple governments within one political system and epistemological questions about recognizing and understanding the "other." Curtis Cook is professor of political science, The Colorado College. Juan D. Lindau is professor of political science, The Colorado College.
