Review:

«This timely collection introduces the still emerging, already rich and fascinating field of Native American Studies. Its essays address issues that are of utmost importance to contemporary Native Americans. And while this book makes palpable the manifold ways colonialism and neo-colonialism have harmed Native and non-Native peoples, it also introduces interdisciplinary perspectives and creative pedagogies that may help heal the wounds of history. A true classic. American Indian Studies: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Contemporary Issues will benefit students, stimulate scholars, and transform readers.» (Joel W. Martin, author of Sacred Revolt: The Muskogees' Struggle for a New World, Franklin and Marshall College)
