9780521415637: Crow Dog's Case: American Indian Sovereignty, Tribal Law, and United States Law in the Nineteenth Century (Studies in North American Indian History)

Crow Dog's Case is the first social history of American Indians' role in the making of American law. The book sheds new light on Native American struggles for sovereignty and justice in nineteenth century America. This "century of dishonor," a time when American Indians' lands were lost and their tribes reduced to reservations, provoked a wide variety of tribal responses. Some of the more successful responses were in the area of law, forcing the newly independent American legal order to create a unique place for Indian tribes in American law.

The first social history of American Indians' role in the making of American law sheds new light on Native American struggles for sovereignty and justice during the "century of dishonor," a time when their lands were lost and their tribes reduced to reservations.

Review:

"Regardless of differences in historical interpretation, few will doubt Harring's conclusions. He has shed insights into nineteenth century tribal legal processes, and that alone is a worthy contribution to legal scholarship of nineteenth century Native American history and he accomplished that task by writing an informative, questioning story." Richmond L. Clow, Great Plains Research

"...a trenchant reminder of the absolutely central role that history--for better or worse--plays in the enterprise of Indian Law." Frank Pommersheim, Journal of American History

"...provides a valuable foundation for understanding the complexities of the legal relationship between the federal government and Indian tribes....Harring's work shows what a rich field of study this can be." Raymond J. DeMallie, Indiana Magazine of History
