Sovereign Nations or Reservations: An Economic History of American Indians

By Terry L. Anderson

Terry Anderson sets out a fresh perspective on the long-standing problem of poverty on American Indian reservations. He argues persuasively that American Indians need less federal government paternalism and more effective local institutions and governmental structures to improve their economic and social well-being. This book is one of the first to address Indian problems from a clear policy and economic viewpoint. Anyone interested in the history and the future prospects for economic development on American Indian reservations should read this book.
