Once again, Case and Voluck have provided the most rigorous and comprehensive presentation of the important laws and concepts in Alaska Native law and policy to date. Thirty years after the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act became law, Alaska Natives are more than ever subject to a dizzying array of laws, statutes, and regulations. This Second Edition provides expanded and up-to-date analyses of ANCSA, the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, and four fields of Alaska Native law and policy: land, human services, subsistence, and self-government. The authors also trace the development of the Alaska Native organizations working to influence and change these policies. Like the first edition, the expanded Alaska Natives and American Laws is the essential reference for anyone working in Native law, policy, or social services, and for scholars and students in law, public policy, environmental studies, and Native American studies.

David Case is recipient of the 1998 Denali Award from the Alaska Federation of Natives for his 25 years of "Dedication and Service to the Alaska Native Community." He was counsel to the Alaska Native Review Commission under Hon. Thomas S. Berger, and was principal author of the Katie John amicus brief for over 20 Alaska Native organizations. He also has nearly 20 years of private practice representing Alaska Native village corporations, tribes, and rural municipalities. He has taught Native law and governance at the University of Alaska in Anchorage and Fairbanks, and conducts tribal court and tribal government training for the National Judicial College and throughout the state.
David Avraham Voluck is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania where he received a bachelor's degree focusing on comparative religion. He then went on to graduate from the North-western School of Law at Lewis & Clark College in 1995 where he received his certificate in environmental and natural resources law and was inducted into the Cornelius Honor Society. He accepted employment with the Sitka Tribe of Alaska as their trust resources attorney and was promoted to Director of the Department of Law and Trust Resources after two and a half years.
"Far from being a mere legal reference guide or hornbook, Alaska Natives and American Laws is essential reading for anyone in business, government, or civic life who is interested in contemporary Alaska. . . . David Case and David Voluck go well beyond summarizing and updating the latest statutes, regulations, and court decisions affecting Alaska Natives and their relationship with the federal government and the State of Alaska. The authors bring order and coherence to that uniquely Alaskan legal landscape that can be dauntingly complex, if not obscure, even to the most seasoned practitioners and policymakers." (Troy A. Eid Alaska Law Review)
