About this title
The historical involvement of native peoples within the criminal justice system is a narrative of tragedy and injustice, yet Native American involvement in this system has not been well studied. Despite disproportionate representation in the criminal justice system, far more time has been spent studying other minority groups. Native Americans, Crime, and Justice is the first book in many years to provide students with a comprehensive overview of Native Americans and the unique challenges they face as justice is meted out, both in the United States and Canada.Crossing disciplines, this important anthology, which includes the voices of both Native Americans and non–Native Americans, provides students in criminology, sociology, and Native American studies courses with articles ranging from the scholarly to the more humanistic and also includes a number of news accounts that complement the other pieces with a sense of immediacy and timeliness about the involvement of Native Americans in the criminal justice system.Students and general readers alike will come away from this collection with a better, more-informed understanding of Native Americans, crime, and justice, whether learning about the unique problem of tribal versus federal jurisdiction on Indian lands, patterns of Native American crime, the process of decision making in tribal courts, or Native American delinquency.
