Federal Indian Law
"Until the Handbook of Federal Indian Law was issued by the Department of the Interior in 1942, no comprehensive guide to these was available. That work was principally the production of Felix S. Cohen, then assistant solicitor of the department.... It was acclaimed in the pages of this JOURNAL as 'a first class text on 'Indian Law.' The acclaim was justified, unquestionably. The present work, prepared with an anonymity that defies a reviewer's attempt to attribute authorship, is stated in the preface to be "a revision and updating through the year 1956' of Mr. Cohen's work. The revision has included a regrouping of the original twenty-three chapters into eleven, coupled with substantial rearrangement of part of the text. However, by use of the tables of contents of the two volumes, it is possible to follow the text of the old into its place in the new. The work of updating has been done thoroughly and conscientiously. This new volume is indispensable to the lawyer who may be concerned with Indian matters or who may wish to become informed concerning the law applicable to Indians.": Maurice H. Merrill, American Bar Association Journal 44 (1958) 1072.
