Exploring tribal-state interactions over land and sovereignty, this book takes a geographical look at issues of environmental regulation, expansion of gaming, criminal jurisdiction, taxation, fishing, and transportation. The contributors find repeatedly that tribes and states have two choices-litigate or cooperate. While identifying the encroachment of state jurisdiction in Indian country, this book also seeks to develop a resource for tribes, states, and all actors in their relationships and to show that no tribal-state interaction has to be a zero-sum game.
