Review:


"An important book because it identifies and explains the intellectual foundations that continue to make it possible to justify keeping the Indians on the outside looking in....A stunning revelation....Rarely has the reviewer seen such a thorough examination of such a diverse body of historical documents as Williams offers in support of the development of his analysis."--Texas Law Review


"The best and most comprehensive treatment of the legal context in which the American Indian is enmeshed."--American Anthropologist


"Extraordinarily insightful....The scope of the book is sweeping."--Reconstruction


"A highly readable, thought-provoking work that provides an excellent overview of the issues and major historical arguments in this field. It is definitely a must read for anyone interested in this subject."--Michigan Law Review


"A sophisticated analysis of Western legal thought and its application to native peoples of the Americas from 1500 to 1800....Persons interested in understanding European intellectual trends and their application to non-Western cultures cannot afford to overlook this book. It is comprehensive, based on methodical textual analysis, and judiciously argued without being a mere diatribe against nameless villians."--American Indian Quarterly

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1992. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In The American Indian in Western Legal Thought Robert Williams, a legal scholar and Native American of the Lumbee tribe, traces the evolution of contemporary legal thought on the rights and status of American Indians and other indiginous tribal peoples. Beginning with an analysis of the medieval Christian crusading era and its substantive contributions to the West s legal discourse of heathens and infidels , this study explores the development of the ideas that justified the New World conquests of Spain, England and the United States. Williams shows that long-held notions of the legality of European subjugation and colonization of savage and barbarian societies supported the conquests in America. Today, he demonstrates, echoes of racist and Eurocentric prejudices still reverberate in the doctrines and principles of legal discourse regarding native peoples rights in the United States and in other nations as well.
