The American Indian Law Deskbook, Second Edition, a collaborative effort of attorneys from the western states' Attorneys General offices who are faced daily with legal questions involving state and tribal relations, is the first, now revised, comprehensive treatise on Indian law that provides readers with the necessary historical and legal framework to understand the complexities faced by states, Indian tribes, and the federal government in Indian country.The Deskbook includes discussions of: the evolution of federal statutory Indian law and the judicial foundations of federal Indian policy; an extensive compilation and analysis of federal and state court decisions; reservation and Indian lands ownership and property interests; the parameters of criminal jurisdiction in Indian country; concepts of tribal sovereignty and jurisdiction relating to a number of specific areas including environmental regulation, water rights, gaming, and child welfare; and cooperative approaches used by the states and tribes for resolving jurisdiction disputes and promoting better relations.Thorough, scholarly, and balanced, the American Indian Law Deskbook, Second Edition will be an invaluable reference to a wide range of people working with Indian tribes, including attorneys and legal scholars, government officials, social workers, state and tribal courts, historians, and corporations.
